Live Oak Public Libraries will present the 2015 Savannah Children’s Book Festival Poster Contest Exhibit from Tuesday through Nov. 20 at the city of Savannah’s Department of Cultural Affairs Gallery. This exhibit will feature nearly 300 designs submitted by students in the elementary-, middle-, and high-school and college categories from Liberty, Chatham, Effingham and neighboring counties.

The contest is held each spring, and students are challenged to create a poster that may be used in the promotion of the city of Savannah-sponsored Savannah Children’s Book Festival. This year’s festival is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14, at Forsyth Park in Savannah. The 12th annual festival celebrates the joy of reading, the power of the written word and the magic of storytelling with children’s-book authors and illustrators from around the country.

In conjunction with the Children’s Book Festival, the library is hosting a Young Writers Contest. An award ceremony and reception for the winners, their families and writing teachers will take place at 5 p.m. Thursday.

The Cultural Affairs Gallery is located at 9 W. Henry St. in Savannah. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information, call 912-651-6783 or go to
