Peeps Diorama Contest

The 6th Annual Peep-le's Choice Awards slideshow is here!

Use the right and left arrows at the bottom of the slideshow to advance through the slides for each category: Teens, Kids, Family, and Adults (warning: some content in Adult category not suitable for all ages). 

For the last five years, Mt. Lebanon Library’s Children’s Department has challenged kids and families to create a book-themed diorama using marshmallow Peeps®. We are excited to continue the tradition virtually for its sixth year and with one major change: we are adding an Adult Category! So let your imagination run wild and see what you can create with those fluffy, sugary bundles of gooey goodness.
