Woodland Public Library Celebrates 150th Anniversary with Library Card Design Contest

The Woodland Public Library encourages residents to enter a library card design contest in honor of its 150-year anniversary in 2024. Help our community kick off the celebration by designing a new commemorative library card! 

Paintings, photography, abstract art, you name it -- the Library wants to showcase your creativity. "We are looking for colorful designs that celebrate the Library’s 150th anniversary," says Greta Galindo, Library Director.

The contest is open to all Woodland residents. A panel will judge the submissions. The winner(s) will receive a $200 award donated by Friends of the Woodland Public Library.

Submissions are due by November 1. The winning designs will be unveiled in January. Contest details are available on the library's website.

A library card is the “ticket” to a library's resources. Woodland Public Library cardholders can check out materials such as books, e-books, DVDs, audiobooks, kits, and more, plus use library computers or access digital resources from any internet connection. A library card also provides access to our makerspace, Square One.

Last year, the Woodland Public Library registered 1,744 new library cards and reports over 36,000 active library cards. The Library plans to order a minimum of 2,500 commemorative cards. 

More information about the anniversary, card contest rules and guidelines, and entry forms can be found at www.cityofwoodland.org/WPL150
