Aldrich Public Library Presents

Creative Reading Challenge

What is Creative Reading?

You probably have heard of creative writing, but how about Creative Reading? We're challenging you to take the joy of reading to the next level by making a creation inspired by a book you have recently read. Submit your design for a chance to win gift certificates to your favorite local businesses! 


Your creation can take any form. You will be submitting a photo or video of your creation. Ideas for your creation include, but are not limited to:

  • A memorable scene in the book

  • Recreating your favorite character out of household supplies, regular art, or food art!

  • Recreating book cover art

  • Cooking a recipe or meal inspired by the book

  • Your imagination is the only limit! Scroll down to view more inspiration to get you started. 

All ages can participate. Submissions will be accepted until Sunday, May 31, 2020.
