“I Love My Library”

“looking for videos that communicate what people love about their library”

This video contest is an opportunity for people to communicate what they love about their Oklahoma library.  Perhaps you'll sit in front of a camera and tell a story about how an Oklahoma library has changed your life.  Maybe you discover a resource at your library that helped save the world from mutant platypuses.  Or perhaps you've composed a song or poem about your love for your library.  Let your creativity lead you.
