Theme for Library Card Design Contest Theme

The current card features the iconic Appeal to the Great Spirit statue.

What do you think represents the Muncie community, the MPL system, reading, books, technology, community engagement, or other concept? Is it an architectural detail on one of the MPL branch buildings? Is it a parent or caregiver reading to a child? Or a group of students engaged in learning? We are excited to see your ideas and your designs!
Selection Process for Library Card Design Contest Selection Process

A committee of MPL employees and Board of Trustees members will evaluate all submissions based on appearance, concept, creativity, representation of the Muncie community and/or Muncie Public Library, and the design’s ability to be replicated as a library card.

The committee will select the top three designs and these will be presented to the community for voting. The winning design will become the image of the new MPL library card!
