Deadline for Southborough Library essay and art contest is Friday

It’s a big year for the Southborough Library as they get ready to celebrate 100 years in their building on Main Street. (Where was the library before then? Read this post to find out.)

As part of the celebration, they’re hosting an essay and art contest for kids ages four through 18. The deadline for submissions is Friday, so encourage your kids to get working on their entires. Here are the details.

The Friends of the Library are sponsoring a Writing and Art Contest for Southborough citizens, age 4-18. Four through seven-year-olds can color a picture, available at the Library, that Children’s Librarian Kim Ivers has selected. Eight through thirteen-year-olds can write an essay, or take a photo that describes, “What the Library Means to Me.” Fourteen through eighteen-year-olds should take a photo, or create a video about “What the Library Means to the Community.” Submissions are due by July 15.  Winners will be announced in the Fall at the Library Centennial Open House in September.

As the Library celebrates 100 years at 25 Main Street, Director Jane Cain and volunteers from the Friends of the Library are gathering stories and photos to record the library’s history. For more information, or to get involved in coordinating activities, call the Library at 508.485.5031.
