Beginning July 1, come into the Library to fill out an entry form, or fill out an entry form online. So if you’re on vacation, or just can’t get to the Library, you can still enter to win.

Tell us:

Choose one of the eight prize you’d like the chance to win. Enter multiple times throughout the summer - enter every time you read, create, learn, and play. The more you do, the more chances you’ll have to win a prize. Each time you enter, you can choose a different prize or you can enter multiple times to win the same prize.

REPRESENT: A Community Art Project logoShare the uniqueness of yourself and your loved ones in our latest community art project. Under the guidance of professional artist Rashmi Talpade, families of all types are invited to create a one-of-a-kind collage-style postcard using a combination of images and text representing themselves. Not the artistic type? Don’t worry - Rashmi will help channel your creativity. All ages welcome - from great-grandparents to teens to preschoolers. Take-home packets are available for those who cannot attend in person. At the end of the summer, all submissions will become part of an exhibition celebrating the families of our community.
