RED BLUFF — With the expert help of the Tehama County Arts Council, two winners have been selected for the Tehama County Library Design a Library Card Community Contest.
Congratulations to Hailey Mayer in the adult category and Savannah Villavicencio in the youth category.
Mayer recently moved to Red Bluff from Southern California; his grandfather has lived in the area for 50 years. She becomes active in the local arts community and describes herself as a “Harry Potter person”.
“It made my year,” Mayer said when told she had won.
Savannah Villavicencio is 14 years old and in first grade. She is an avid reader and has so many books she loves that she can’t choose a favorite. She was so excited for this contest that she made her conception very early. It was displayed proudly on his family’s refrigerator for some time and was submitted towards the very end of the contest period.
The Tehama County Arts Council said Villavicencio’s use of color and clarity is what made his design the winner.
“We received over 50 submissions for our Design a Library Card contest,” said Librarian Todd Deck. “I want to thank all the artists who submitted designs.”
All submissions can be viewed at http://www.tehamacountylibrary.org/2022/04/13/library-card-contest-entries/.
The Tehama County Arts Council provided the grant to provide this opportunity for local artists. The members took great care in choosing the winners.
“They were a dream organization to work with, and I can’t thank them enough,” Deck said.
