You're Invited to Special Window Wrap-Up Reveal!

Your Abilene Public Library's Main Branch, located at 202 Cedar St., would like to invite the community to a special Window Wrap-Up Reveal on Tuesday, March 15 at 4:00PM.  We'll be celebrating our newly transformed windows that will be decorated by beautiful window vinyls.  The design of the new windows will feature the artwork of Lyric K., an amazingly talented teen who won last summer's art contest.

The public was invited to participate in a special art contest during the summer of 2015 to submit their artwork for a chance to win and have their designs re-created on a larger scale.  Once all submissions were received, a teen's submission was selected as the winner.  Her work features popular book and fandom adaptations from Harry Potter, the Chronicles of Narnia, and Doctor Who, which are references many will recognize.

Lyric's artwork was then transformed by SignTex into large window vinyl clings to adorn a section of windows on the first floor at the Main Library.  This will be the second piece of original artwork added to the Main Library by a local teen.  The new window art will join the ranks of our previous original artwork from another local teen who decorated the children's storyroom door at the Main Library.  It's our pleasure to have the opportunity to, once again, enhance your library with the help of our wonderful patrons.

So join us for the official unveiling of a new piece of art as we introduce the new window clings at 4:00PM on Tuesday, March 15 during Spring Break.  We'll serve cupcakes and drinks, and our teen artist will be present as well.  For more information regarding the Window Wrap-Up Reveal, contact children's librarian Kelsie Wade at 325-676-6067.
