Story Sketches - Create your own story!

You have some awesome stories to share and the library wants to help!

Send us your stories up to 500 words long, and we may post it on our PCPL Kids YouTube page for everyone to see. If you want, you can express your inner artist and illustrate the story as well. If not, our library artists will create pictures to go with your fantastic tale.
