Blinged Booktrucks on View, Or Is It Blung?

By Communications Office Mon, July 23, 2007

The Free Library’s Staff Association held a block party this past Friday, on Wood Street behind the Central Library. By all accounts the event was a huge success. Festivities included a “Bling My Booktruck” contest, in which teams from various locations and departments throughout the Free Library system put their arts and crafts skills to the test, competing for "Best in Show" and "Best Use of Bling," among other honors. Some of these booktrucks are currently on display in the Central Library’s Main Lobby, so stop by and check them out before they’re “de-blinged” and restored for their intended use.
