Design a Library Card
Students: Here’s your chance to design a library card that will be in the hands and wallets of thousands of Pierce County residents! Pierce County Library System is asking kids and teens to design a new library card. Take part in this free design contest that goes through Friday, May 29, and have your name appear along next to your artwork on the printed card, which will be available throughout Pierce County. Professional artists will review entries and select finalists for the two age categories (children between ages 5-11 and teenagers between 12-18). The public will select the winners from the finalists by voting online later this year. So start thinking and get going on your masterpiece here.
