Kids competition at Renfrewshire Libraries

Kids competition at Renfrewshire Libraries

Libraries across Renfrewshire want local kids to help name some friendly little monsters who live among their books!

The ‘Skoobs’ are a bunch of colourful characters designed to attract children to the library.

Kids up to the age of 12 can enter a competition to name the Skoobs. The winner will have their picture taken with a life-size Skoob in May.

Younger kids can pop into the library to help the staff colour in some of the smaller Skoobs.

Franzeska G Ewart will be on the judging panel. Franzeska is a Lochwinnoch-based children’s author who has written over 20 novels.

Franzeska said: “The Skoobs are a great idea – the competition should give children a feeling of involvement with books, and that has to be good!

“It’s a real honour to be judging the competition and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of names we get in.”

Competition entry forms can be picked up from any Renfrewshire Library from 8 April onwards. Completed entries can be posted in the Skoob postbox in each library. The closing date for entries is Saturday 27 April.
