kleiman new logo2.pngIt's time for the 18th Annual Kleiman Creative Writing Contest, presented by the Kendallville Public Library and open to all 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students.

The Kleiman family has sponsored this contest for the past 18 years, in honor of Isadore and Pearl Kleiman, who were frequent visitors to the Kendallville Public Library. Isadore and Pearl's children are still involved, but now their grandchildren are taking an active role in the contest and its funding.

Complete information on the 2017 contest can be found here

All books will be due at the Kendallville Public Library or its Limberlost Branch in Rome City by closing (6:00 p.m.) on Friday, March 17, 2017.

All students who participate in the Kleiman Creative Writing Contest will be recognized at an Awards Banquet in the spring. Top prizes in each category and grade level will be given out, as well. The cost for student meals, one guest, and teacher meals will be underwritten by the Kleiman family.
