The Sheboygan Children's Book Festival, established in 2010, is presented in partnership with community volunteers and local organizations that believe in the transforming power of reading and the literary and visual arts. 

The SCBF has brought thousands of children and teens together with world-class authors and illustrators at schools and at our beautiful, welcoming festival venues: Mead Public Library, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, and Bookworm Gardens.
