Words in a book can tell us a story, give us information, or make us feel a particular emotion. A photograph can often do the same and when it does, it’s magic. It talks to us without words.
The deadline for entries for the 23rd Annual “Images of Haltom City” Photo Contest is March 29, 2011. This contest started in 1985 as part of an American Library Association contest with the City of Haltom City taking over the sponsorship of it in 1989. The number of entries and the talent displayed has increasingly grown over the years.
In honor of the library’s 50th birthday, a new photo category, “A City of Readers” has been added to the contest this year. Focusing on the importance of reading in America and in our community is a truly fitting tribute to the library's 50 years of service. So grab your camera and help make this year’s contest the best ever! All of the photo entries will be displayed at the library in April, 2011, so I hope to see yours there!
You can find out more information about the “Images of Haltom City” photo contest on the City’s website as well as the rules and other contest photo categories.
50th Year Birthday Cake! Just a reminder to stop in tomorrow afternoon, Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 4:30 for a cake cutting ceremony to be held by the NET Chamber.
