The Dover Public Library is looking for some creative peeps from among all Dover residents, Dover students, or Dover Public Library cardholders to enter our fifth annual “Peeps Show” contest in March.
Here’s how it works: Build a diorama using peeps of any color in a standard size shoe box. The theme is anything literary: recreate a scene from a favorite book or portray a character from a book. The first 16 entries will receive a free plush Peep bunny or chick.
There are four prize divisions. Anyone 17 or older is invited to compete in the Adult Division, while peeps, er, people 11- 16 may enter the Teen Division. Children ages 2 – 6 are invited to enter the Kids Division, and ages 7 – 10 may enter in the Youth Division. On the back of your shoe box, please include your name, address, and phone number, plus your age and the title of your “Peeps Show”. Winners in each division will receive a $25 Target gift card, courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
Your Peeps display may be dropped off at the Dover Public Library beginning Monday, March 18, through Saturday, March 30. Peep entries will be displayed in the library for all to enjoy. Prizes will be awarded Monday afternoon, April 1. Peeps should then be picked up by Thursday, April 4. All Peeps not picked up by the deadline will be discarded or eaten. For more information, call 516-6082.
