Painting, poetry, songs, music, short films, stories, cross-stitch—we accept all forms of art and creativity in our Teen Summer Reading Creativity Contest! If you can conceive it and execute it, then we want to see it.
Email your art or project to firstname.lastname@example.org before 11:59pm on Monday, July 13th to participate in the contest. Your work will be featured anonymously in an online gallery on July 15-July 27 where people can submit votes (via Google Form) on which artwork/project they like the most. A panel of librarians will also pick the Library's Choice winner.
Our Creativity Contest winners and honorable mentions will be contacted on Friday, July 31st and receive gift cards and other fabulous prizes!
JOURNEY TO MORDOR
This summer The Emmet O’Neal Library Teen Department is encouraging you to get out and get moving, and we’re giving away prizes to help motivate you.
Sam and Frodo’s journey from Bag End in Hobbiton to Mordor to destroy the ring was approximately 1780 miles. You can roll, walk, run, skate, paddle, bike, swim, or even horseback ride to rack up your miles.
Pick up or download one of our handy-dandy maps, so you can keep track of your progress, and check in with us on Beanstack in order to log your miles. Registration for the Journey to Mordor will be open in Beanstack on Monday, May 25th.
Let the journey begin with you!
