Sullivan County Youth Book Festival postponed; online auction will fund next year’s event

The second bi-annual Sullivan County Youth Book Festival (SCYBF), originally scheduled for May 29, 2021, has been postponed to the same weekend in 2022. In its place the planning committee will host an online auction to help raise money for a bigger, better festival in 2022.

In light of the Festival’s mission to create, sustain and nurture a culture of literacy, this online auction will feature all things related to children’s literature including:

Signed books & art prints

Custom-made craft items

A Calico Geese quilt

Personal chats with authors

Themed bundles of children’s books

Gift certificates & more 

The auction will begin on May 3rd & run through May 24th. Just like in a live auction, participants will be able to bid on any item, any number of times. Winners will be able to pick up purchases at the Ethelbert B. Crawford Library after May 24. For more information visit or the festivals social media pages.
