Richland Library recently published more than 60 young Midlands authors and artists in Kids in Print. Children submitted their art, poems and stories and were selected based on originality and craftsmanship. Check out our artists and authors at photostream on Flickr, and visit the Children's Room at Main to see winning pieces on display!
Congratulations, authors and artists, on being brave and expressing yourself.
--The Kids in Print Selection Committee
Richland Library has so much to offer to spark the imagination of young minds. Get lost in a book, attend a class or event, or check out our fun movie collection! If your family is always on the go, grab one of our Playaway audiobooks or video players. With all of these wonderful resources, it’s easy for Midlands youth to get inspired and come up with a creative work of their own.
