National Library Week 2016--Altered Book Contest

by SM | Mar 21, 2016

National Library Week | Altered Book Contest


An altered book is a form of mixed media artwork that changes a book from its original form into a different form, altering its appearance and/or meaning. Altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page, or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture.

Pick up an entry form at any library location. Entries accepted only at the Main Library’s Art, Music & Media Department on Monday, April 4 from 1–7 pm. Prizes & Winners will be announced Monday, April 11 at noon on the ACPL Facebook page. Call (260) 421–1200 ext. 2104 with questions. Altered Books will be on display at the Main Library April through June 2016.
