• Register for the Sidewalk Chalk Competition!

    Join us in front of the Library for the annual Sidewalk Chalk Art Competition! Aspiring local artists, equipped with chalk, will have an opportunity to create sidewalk art based on the theme "Reading is Magic." Participants will have the opportunity to win several fun prizes.

    Registration: You must register in advance if you would like to be guaranteed a space in the program. Walk ons will be accepted as space permits on a first come, first served basis.

    Awards: We'll have lemonade and a light snack for all our competition participants in the Dahlmann Reading Garden in front of the Library from 3:00 to 3:30. Prize winners will be announced at this time.
