Why I Love My Library Contest Winners

Our "Why I Love My Library" Contest inspired wonderful poems, drawings, essays, and one-liners. In fact there were so many funny, inspiring, or heartwarming entries that our judges, Laura Headley and Hadassah Contreras, had a difficult time making their choices. But the 1st place winners are:

Preschool: Kayleigh McCullough (picture)
Grades K-2: Ji-Eun Song (picture)
Grades 3-5: Mackenzie Miller (poem)
Middle School: Jaeyeon Park (picture)
High School: Rachel Bohrman (essay)
Adults: Melinda Wates (poem)
Senior Citizen: Mary Beach (collage)

Thank you to every one who entered the contest, and to the fabulous local merchants who dontated prizes: I'm Puzzled, Tessuti Zoo, and The Works.
Winning entries are currently on display at the Library. Come by and see how talented our patrons are.... Meanwhile we'll leave you with the opening stanza of Mackenzie Miller's poem:
"The Five Senses of my Library and one Extra"
I love my library
because of its smell,
it smells like
and new adventures
waiting to happen.
