You do need to register in person, so you can    receive the number that will be displayed on your scarecrow creation. You do not need to attend the scarecrow workshop to participate in the “Scarecrows on Parade.”

Registered scarecrows will be judged by library staff on Wednesday, September 28.  Prizes will be awarded in five categories: Silliest, Most Creative, Best Book Character, People’s Choice, and Best Business.
