Recovering the Classics Open to Voting


Back in November we began our Recovering the Classics program. For the program we encouraged people to recreate the covers of classic books because many of the covers are outdated or auto-generated. Now our Pop Up Art Gallery is available for viewing and voting in the library. You can also view and vote online by following the links below or beginning at 11 AM on January 14, 2017 you'll be able to vote on Twitter by using the appropriate hashtags and tagging @MaudMarks. We're asking you to check out each cover and then vote on your favorite in each of the three categories.
