I know you all wait for it every year! The 6th annual Yuma LibraryCon is just a few days away! This year it will be on May 4th from 10AM to 4PM in the Main Library. We have all kinds of amazing panels and guests coming, and of COURSE the Cosplay Contest! We hope you all can make it, it's seriously going to be the best one ever!

From northern Mexico, Hysterot Cosplay will be our special judges for the Cosplay Contest!

Author, puppet maker and video game character designer Matt Gardner will be here. 

We're accepting art for an art show at the Con.

April Poetry Contest!

April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, the Main Library is hosting a poetry contest! Details are in the image below, but in case you can't see it well, here are the basics:

It's open to anyone ages 13-18.
The poem can be any style and doesn't have to rhyme. 
The poems can't be longer than 20 lines. 
You can turn in a poem that is either typed out or written by hand, but make sure we can read your handwriting if it's hand-written. 
You can pick up an entry form at the Main Library Teen desk.
Once poem will be featured on this blog each week, and one poem will be chosen as "best poem" by an anonymous vote. 
If your poem is chosen as a featured poem you will win a small prize. 
If your poem is chosen as the best poem you will win a slightly bigger prize. 

Get your entries in early! No poems will be accepted after the 26th. Voting opens in the teen room on the 29th of April and ends on May 4th, after Library Con.
