JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — The Prendergast Library in Jamestown is holding a Teen Graphic Novel Writing Contest. Its the first programming event by the library's newly formed Teen Advisory Council.
The theme of the contest is anti-bullying and is open to teens ages 13 to 18. The novel must be between 50 and 70 pages long and must include all original content. It's all part of an effort to get students and teens into the library.
"So we want them to come in, use the computers, use our resources, use our books for researching, use our different databases to find information. Anything to get them in to realize that we have more than just books here," said Kristie Bemis, Prendergast Librarian
