Thank you to the community members as there were 238 shark votes in all categories!  We had 91 decorated shark entries and much fun.  Homer Library will definitely be doing Shark Week again next year!  Everyone commented that it was an unusual library opportunity that allowed our customers to get creative.

S H A R K W E E K @ Homer Library!

Ahoy there, Matey!
Check out these decorated samples of our Shark Week Library Contest (ALL AGES) that begins June 30th.  Simply come in and purchase a $2 ceramic unfinished (white) shark bank.  Take one home and paint or decorate it with any medium you'd like.  Props and backgrounds are entirely optional, but can be no larger than 8"H x 8"W x 5"D. 

Patti had a great time decorating the attached samples.

Decorated sharks can be returned for display at the library through July 26.  Public judging will take place during SHARK WEEK, August 4-9. 

Entries will be judged in 4 categories: Most Popular, Editor's Choice, Most Creative & Movie Themed.  Prizes will be awarded in each category!

Reading is Jawsome!
