This week at the library...

Other than the usual toddler and preschool storytimes at all three libraries, it's pretty quiet this week, but we're gearing up for something big: The annual...

Friends of the Burbank Public Library
Photography Contest!


In case you haven't been paying attention, the submission dates were February 1 through February 22, so if you haven't yet submitted your work of art, THIS SATURDAY is the absolute deadline!

This contest is open to AMATEUR photographers of any age. Each participant may submit one photo. Photos MUST be mounted, and MAY be matted, and no frames are allowed. For the rest of the rules and regs...

You can pick up an ENTRY FORM at any desk at the library, or download the entry form HERE. The categories (if you're wondering whether there's one for you) are as follows:
  • Age 12 and under
  • Digital Creation
  • Special Effects
  • People Posed
  • People Unposed
  • Still Life
  • Animals
  • Scenic
  • Photojournalism
Be sure to read the specifics for each category (particularly the digital and special) to make sure you get it right!

The contest is juried by professional photographers who volunteer their time for this event. (We are grateful for their time and attention!) Ribbons and certificates are awarded for Honorable Mention, Third, Second, First, and Best of Category honors.

There will be a Photo Contest Reception at Buena Vista Branch Library on Thursday, March 13, 2014, at 6:30 p.m., to announce the winners.

After that, the photos chosen for display will be exhibited at the Central Library from Friday, March 14, through Wednesday, April 16, and may be viewed during regular library hours (except when the auditorium is in use).


ALSO THIS SATURDAY...

LEGO CLUB at the Central Library
11:00 a.m., for ages 2-14 and their families!
Come, play, create!
