Call for Resource Guide Submissions
The 2021 theme is Reading Colors Your World, which lends itself to a wide range of interpretations and vibrant graphic presentation. The broad motif of “colors” provides a context for exploring humanity, nature, culture, and science, as well as developing programming that demonstrates how libraries and reading can expand your world through kindness, growth, and community. Library patrons, young and old, will be encouraged to develop creativity, try new things, explore art, and find beauty in diversity. The Resource Guide will help you tell the story: “Read a book and color your world!”
