CHAPEL HILL – Whether you doodle in page margins or you’re being hired to redo the Sistine Chapel, the Chapel Hill Library wants your artistic talent.
Artists of all ages can submit original artwork as part of the Chapel Hill Public Library’s trading card project for Banned Books Week.
Library director Susan Brown previously implemented this program at Lawrence Public Library in Lawrence, Kansas, for which she won the John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award.
Artists should submit 5” by 7” artwork and include the name of the book or author who inspired the piece and a one to two paragraph statement explaining the piece. Artwork and statements can be dropped off at the library or mailed to Shannon Bailey at 100 Library Drive, Chapel Hill, NC27514. Entries are accepted until August 19.
Banned Books Week is from September 22 to 28 each year and is a celebration of the freedom to read.
