The eagerly-anticipated annual tournament of talent welcomes entries of original analog art in categories from Kindergartners to Adults. If your design is selected by the panel of Friends and Librarian jurors, it will be printed and distributed at all 14 Johnson County Library branches, Friends Bookstores and at public events.
