Library After Dark-Success!   Leave a comment

Thanks to everyone who participated in our National Library Week festivities. About fifty people participated in our Library After Dark Open House– voting for their favorite Recycled Book Contest entry, creating a READ poster of themselves, being interviewed for the new library YouTube video, going on scavenger hunts, finding origami cranes, buying books at the Library Book Sale, eating good food, winning prizes, and having fun!

Our first place winner was… Mary Warner, with her hand crafted and altered book creation:

Our second place winner was… Carol Thomas, with a photo frame that she created using an old book cover:

Congrats, and thanks again to everyone who participated and helped make this year’s Library After Dark a success. To view more photos of our Library After Dark activities, check out our Flickr photo stream.
