The Longview Library Foundation and The Friends of the Library are asking creative people of all ages to make works of art out of used books for a silent auction on April 27th.
We want ALL creative types to participate! You do not need to be a professional artist.
Free books are provided by the Friends of the Library or you can use your own.
Feel free to make something by yourself or in a group. Experiment! Play! Have fun!
All proceeds from the auction will go towards benefiting library programs.
To sign up for Art Speaks Volumes and claim your free books to alter, stop by the Main Desk on the Main Floor of the Longview Public Library.
Turn in your finished altered books on April 27th between 10:00am and 1:00pm at the Rose Center lobby (the Rose Center is located on the Lower Columbia College campus).
Make sure your finished altered book is completely ready to display and auction off before turning it in (nothing wet or still drying on or inside the book, etc.).
Works will be displayed during the silent auction on April 27th, from 5:00pm - 7:00pm at the Rose Center.
Beginning March 15th tickets can be purchased at the Broadway Gallery and at Paperbacks Galore to attend the silent auction (they will also be sold at the Rose Center on April 27th during the event). Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for students. Grounds for Opportunity will be catering the event, and ticketholders 21 and over will also be able to get two glasses of wine or sparkling cider during the silent auction.
