Agassiz Library celebrates Literacy Month with contest

Crackle the Crow needs a PPE mask

Literacy Month is in full swing at the Agassiz Library.

The Agassiz Library is hosting a contest from kids from ages 3 to 18 to make a PPE mask for unofficial mascot Crackle the Crow. The contest is divided into four age groups: 3-5, 6-9, 10-12 and 13-18. Winners will have their designs made into a mask for Crackle and will receive a $10 gift card. The contest ends September 19 at 5 p.m.

As for the adult library patrons, the library offers a fun display featuring the first lines of famous books to see if they can guess what book the line is from.
