Story Sketches

Help your child express their creativity, imagination and their artistic side by participating in our Story Sketches program this summer.  The story can be one you write down for them or one they write themselves.

The story should be about 500 words or less. Our staff will turn the story into an online video that may be shared on PCPL’s YouTube channel.  Not only can they see their ideas turned into a virtual masterpiece, they can then watch other stories from kids all over our community!
