RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander District Library creates several programs each year for its library summer reading program. This year, the library is adding a twist to the typical craft contest.
The overall theme of this year's summer reading program is "The Library Rocks." One of the programs for adults is "The Chopped Craft Contest."
"Somebody came in a couple weeks ago and said 'I can't believe you have stuff out for adults, not just kids.' We love to play, we love to be creative, it's kind of cool to walk into a library and just see what's available," said Library Assistant Cindy Weddle.
The Chopped Craft Contest requires people to use a rock, a piece of music, part of a book, and another item of their choice to make an art piece.
Weddle hopes this year's craft contest will be as successful as last year's.
"It was fabulous. People had so much fun creating it, but then the people coming in loved to see what was created by the people," said Weddle.
People can create a piece in any medium, as long as it can fit on a table. The pieces must be turned in by next Friday the 29th.
People can then vote for their favorite pieces through July.
