San Bernardino County Library has Art Contest and Book Sale – San Bernardino Sun


The San Bernardino County Library System has an art competition at its 32 branches and a book sale at select branches in August.

In the art competition, focused on the native flora and fauna of the county, participants are invited to decorate a county map to reflect the natural landscape of where they live, for a chance to win a Family Fun Pack, according to a press release.

The template and registration form will be available in branch libraries starting August 7. Art and completed forms should be emailed by September 15 to [email protected]

The book sale, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, will run August 16-21 at 11 of the 32 county library branches. At the sale, those who buy a book can purchase a second book of equal or lesser value at 50% off.

Proceeds will be used to fund special events, materials and programs at library branches.
