"The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man."

T.S. Eliot

Congratulations to teen library patron Ashton Lear!

Ashton has been selected as one of 53 state and territory finalists for this year's Doodle 4 Google contest! This year's theme: "What makes"?

Ashton's winning entry from the State of West Virginia is "Telling Tall Tales." 

From Ashton: "What makes me, "me" is my love of telling stories.  This doodle shows me (on "o") telling my siblings (on "G") a story, brought to life around us. Because I love writing, reading, and drawing, I created this from paper, and "Google" is cut out of a story I wrote."

Ashton was recently featured in The Journal.

Voting for the five national finalists will be open through February 22, 2016.

Vote early and often!
