This is the fourth year that WCCLS has encouraged young artists to submit designs representative of our summer reading theme. Over 40 pieces were submitted and on March 12th, a panel of teen librarians met to review feedback collected from local Teen Library Councils. The vote was unanimous - Kait Baird’s piece best represented the 2013 Summer Reading Program and the "Beneath the Surface" theme.
Congratulations to all, and thanks for participating.
