The Bar Harbor Kids Book Festival is a community effort to celebrate kids and story. We promote reading and writing by connecting local kids to authors from Maine and beyond. Those authors and illustrators write across genres and reading levels and ages, but they all are amazing.

Kind support from our donors and sponsors lets us make this festival free and open to the public on Saturday as well as get authors into schools on Friday. 

We would not be happening if it weren't for the MDI Rotary Club  financial donations and the donations of time and space from the Jesup Memorial Library, MDI YWCA and Bar Harbor Congregational Church. 

Help us continue to celebrate kids and story by DONATING TODAY!

Thank you so much for your support!

 We'll soon have a special feature highlighting our donors and their awesome generosity. Check back soon! Our next story might be about you!
