Peep into a Book at Booth Library this Spring

Join Booth Library for a literary celebration by creating a book-inspired diorama where all the characters are Peeps! Booth Library’s Peep™ Into a Book: The Peeples Choice Awards 2024 will kick off National Library Week activities this year.

Students, faculty, staff, and area residents are encouraged to join in the fun by creating their own book-themed dioramas featuring Peeps™! In a shoebox or similar-sized box, create a diorama with the iconic Easter candies — Peeps™! — as the main characters.

All characters in the diorama must be made using Peeps™. Craft supplies and other objects can be used to complete the diorama, which should be connected to a book in its theme or content.

Students are encouraged to make their Peep™ diorama at this year’s Crafting Galore on April 7! Supplies will be provided. Look for this activity in the BTC on the main floor of the library (while supplies last). In addition, a limited supply of Peep™ diorama starter kits will be available to pick up at the library beginning April 1.

Peep™ dioramas can be dropped off at the library from 5-11 p.m. Sunday, April 7, at the Research Help desk on the main floor, or from 8-9 a.m. on Monday, April 8, in the Marvin Foyer on the north end of the building. Entries will be on display for public viewing and voting from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

All Peep™ entries are eligible to win one of three best-in-show prizes, determined by popular vote (the “Peeples Choice” Award). Honorable mentions also will be awarded. Prizes will be distributed during a reception at 4 p.m. April 8 in the library’s Marvin Foyer.

Those who plan to enter the contest are asked to register in advance.

More information about the Peep™ Into a Book event can be found on the library website. Questions may be directed to event organizer Amy Odwarka at
