The Art Showcase is an art show managed by the Library’s Teen Leadership Group. This is the second year for this competition. Prizes this year were made available thanks to the generosity of a local business. The prizes this year were: 1st: $50 gift card; 2nd: $25 gift card; 3rd: $10 gift card.

A Teen Leadership Group is a group of teens (13-18 years old) who volunteer to plan, promote, and run teen programming in the library. This group also recommends materials for purchase—including books, games, and movies—and makes suggestions about new and existing services.
