LAKEVIEW, Ore.—November 4, 2020— Summer Reading Program may be over, but the fun is not! Kindergarten through 12th grade students are challenged to create art to Imagine Your Story. Early art entries will receive a free 2020 Summer Reading Program shirt while supplies last. Entries will be accepted at the Main Library starting Tuesday, November 7, 2020.
By the time the pandemic hit in March, most Summer Reading Program supplies had already been purchased, including tee shirts to give away to promote the program. The library had to completely redesign the program to accommodate public health restrictions, which meant strict limits on in-person program attendance, and no big events at the schools. This left the library with too many shirts on their backs.
“We thought an art contest would be a fun way to distribute the extra shirts,” said Library Director Amy Hutchinson. “Students who enter an artwork in the Imagine Your Story theme can receive a free shirt while supplies last” said Hutchinson. Artworks will be displayed for at least one month at the Main Library, where they can be enjoyed by the community.
