Never-Ending Storybook Project @ Brackett Library

The Brackett Library has begun a pilot program for the The Never-Ending Storybook project. Elementary aged children are encouraged to participate by checking out one of the three Character Bags that comes with one of the three stuffed characters, its personality and history, and a copy of the story thus far and the materials needed to create your own page of the story.

Children are asked to continue the story in one or two paragraphs, take a photo or draw a picture of their character and return their addition to the book, as well as the rest of the packet to the Brackett Library within one week.

For more information contact Hollie McDougall at 772-226-3080.
