Show some love for your favorite book, movie, game or TV show by recreating your favorite scene or moment as a book nook. A book nook is a diorama that can fit on a bookshelf. You can use any box similar in size to a shoebox to create your finished piece for this all-ages contest. You can also stop by the Children’s Services Desk or the Vortex beginning Monday, March 21 to pick up a box, while supplies last.
