COFFEE anyone?

Are you a borrower or a buyer?  Of books, I mean?  If you haven’t been to your local library recently, be sure to stop by. Many libraries are re-inventing themselves to look much like big box book stores complete with vendors of coffee & pastries.  They often also lend music, movies and even art.  This next Call comes from a library with a full-fledged art gallery adjacent.  This is for 3-d work only…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Friends of the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library (Topeka, KS) for Topeka Competition 33 at the Alice C.
