MiLibraryQuest Logo Contest Winner Announced!!
Congratulations to Josephine Sokoloski!
The MiLibraryQuest team is happy to announce our new, official logo! This logo was created by Michigan teen, Josephine Sokoloski, from the Linden Branch of Genesee District Library.
This logo will be used to represent MiLibraryQuest throughout all of our future Quests. Individual Quests may have their own thematic logos as well; this logo will represent MiLibraryQuest overall. Jo's logo incorporates the core elements of each and every Quest: an outline of our great state representing all libraries and teens throughout Michigan, a magnifying glass representing the joy of the search during each Quest, and an open book representing the love of libraries (if you look closely, you may see our state tree and state bird as well).
We received 12 entries in our logo contest and were very impressed with the talent evident in each of them. Thank you to everyone who entered. It was truly a hard decision to make! Congratulations, Jo, on your winning design!
EXTRA! EXTRA! WINTER QUEST 2021
A LITTLE HISTORY...
MiLibraryQuest is a consortium of public libraries working together to create fun, attractive, and exciting challenges for teens throughout Michigan. Our goal is to collaborate with public libraries all over the State of Michigan to provide new, virtual opportunities for our teen patrons. For more information, email: email@example.com.
MiLibraryQuest began as a a small group of library staff from various public libraries who, back in the beginning of the COVID shutdown, were looking for ideas to engage teens with their libraries'. At a regular Library of Michigan Youth webinar with Cathy Lancaster hosting, she asked if anyone was interested in doing something state-wide for teen programming. From there, we began meeting via Zoom and were able to design and implement MiLibraryQuest in July 2020 with over 90 libraries participating.
All of your hard work paid off, and police were able to capture Mariposa Mountblanc before she could make off with the Mackinac Bridge! You followed the clues, and used your deductive skills to everyone's benefit. This reporter has only glowing reviews of your wonderful reasoning skills. Make sure to join us again in the summer for another MiLibraryQuest!
