Includes an opportunity to design next library card
The Huntsville-Madison County Public Library has a big year planned. To kick off its bicentennial year, HMCPL is hosting two art contests for area students. In addition, the library is also hosting a horror short story in conjunction with its Madison County Reads program.
The art contest has two categories:
- A poster contest for grades Prek-5
- A library card design contest for grades 6-12
The theme of both contests are “Your Library: 200 years from now.” Entries are due February 28, 2018.

In conjunction with Madison County Reads, the library’s community-wide reading initiative, the library is encouraging budding and seasoned writers to submit their best horror short story. The writing contest is open to both teens and adults in two separate categories. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2018.
