BV Library seeking new library card designs


Share your creative talent with the Bella Vista community by designing a new library card for the Bella Vista Public Library.

Artists of all ages are welcome to highlight their creative talents by entering the Bella Vista Public Library Design Contest.

“We thought launching a design contest would give all area artists a chance to shine,” said Alex Newman, Children’s Services Librarian. “The contest will highlight the artistry and creativeness of our patrons and bring our community together to share in a new design,” she said.

Staffers are looking for a design that is colorful and represents the community. Suggested themes include Bella Vista, the library, literacy, nature, biking, unity, and diversity. 

All artwork must be original, not published elsewhere, and free of any copyright restrictions. Submissions can be in any medium (crayon, pencil, paint, photography, etc.), if the design fits the library card dimensions. 

“We look forward to seeing some unique designs that will reflect the incredible facets of our community,” Newman said.

Anyone interested in participating should pick up an entry packet in-person at the library or find out more details at www.bvpl.org. Submission deadline is 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20.
