Altered Books Contest Starts April 1st

Altered BooksKingwood Branch Library is happy to announce its 2nd Annual Altered Books Contest beginning April 1st through June 30th. Altered books are books that are modified or altered by any number of means to make an artistic statement. The contest is open to all ages; participants can enter into one of three categories. To participate in the contest, simply pick up a book (or supply your own) and contest form from the 2nd Floor Reference Desk.

Wait--there's more! We are also offering workshops in conjunction with our contest. Workshops are not mandatory for contest participation and are open to anyone even if they're not participating in the contest.

For the poetic at heart, join us on Wednesday, April 9th from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM to make blackout or found poetry. For the DIY-er, join us on Wednesday, April 23rd at 4:00 PM and make a journal for writing and scrapbooking. Books and limited supplies will be available at both workshops. Workshops require registration and are open to all ages. Children ages 11 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

For more information on the contest and workshops, please visit the 2nd Floor Reference Desk or call (281)360-6804.
