We are celebrating National Library Week at the Canton Public Library with a special writing contest! All ages and resident/nonresident patrons are eligible to participate. The goal is to create a funny, original, unpublished opening sentence to the worst imaginary novel ever written. CPL's "It was a Dark and Stormy Night" bad-writing contest will receive entries during National Library Week, beginning 9:00 AM April 13 through 9:00 PM April 19. One entry per person. One winner will be selected.

The rules are simple: Submit your entry online. Inappropriate situations or language will be disqualified. The winner will be contacted by April 30 and have a week to claim a prize. Good luck to all our participants!
