Prizes for first, second, and third place will be awarded at a public reception on Sunday, Aug. 26, 3:30-4:30 p.m. The community is invited to attend, and refreshments will be served.

In addition, art historian Jeff Mishur will offer an introduction to art appreciation before the reception from 2 to 3 p.m. for those wanting to learn more about art. Register here.

Once Upon a Time: Exploring Books through Art Contest

How can art be used to express the role that books and reading play in people’s lives?

Artists ages 13 and up are asked to explore this concept in the library’s Once Upon a Time: Exploring Books through Art Contest, sponsored by the IPPL Foundation & Friends. Complete contest details can be found at artcontest.ippl.info.

Entries are due Monday, July 2, and prizes for first, second, and third place will be $200, $100, and $50, respectively.
