On Monday, Feb. 10, the Bartlett Public Library kicked off a special Mixed Media Contest to ask an important question of its patrons: "How has your library changed your life?"

Libraries serve an important role in the community, offering opportunities for children, teens and adults, alike, to learn, to grow and to achieve and by offering teaching and guidance to positively impact and change lives. And it is exactly these changes that the library is interested in hearing about.

Patrons are encouraged to stop at the Bartlett Public Library District, 800 S. Bartlett Road or to visit www.bartlett.lib.il.us/LivesChange/liveschange.shtml to share their stories. The Lives Change @ Your Library Mixed Media Contest will offer a platform for community members to convey actual stories of how their lives have been impacted because of the Library.

To collect the stories, the Bartlett Public Library will hold this quarterly contest in which participating children, teens and adults in the community can share their submissions in the form of a written story, poetry, video, photographs, song, art, dance or any other audio/visual means created to tell their individual story.

The first 250 entrants will receive a coin purse with the Lives Change @ Your Library brand upon entry. The contest will run through December, and winners will be selected on a quarterly basis in April, July, October and December. Submission categories will be Adult (18 and older), Teen (ages 13-17) and Youth (ages 5-12). Quarterly prizes are two-packs of movie passes to Classic Cinemas. The grand prize winner will be selected from the quarterly winners and will receive an iPod Nano. Questions can be directed to Mary Beth Smith at msmith@bartlett.lib.il.us or (630) 213-5041.

Bartlett Public Library District is one of the best places to learn and discover. The library has been a part of the community since 1968. To learn more, visit www.bartlettlibrary.org, Facebook, Twitter or call (630) 837-2855.
