Youth Art Month Contest

Friday, March 31, 2023
All Branches
Calling all youth artists! For Youth Art Month, we're challenging you to create and submit an original 2D work of art based on the theme of our upcoming summer reading program: Camp Myth! For this theme, draw your favorite mythical beast or hero. You can even make up your own!

The winning artwork will be made into a collectible summer reading prize bookmark. Entries should be 3x7 inches. Starting March 1, you can stop by the Downtown Library children's information desk, the Ellettsville Branch, or the Bookmobile to grab a template, if needed. When you're finished, drop your entry off at any MCPL location by March 31 to enter.

Make sure your entry has the following information written legibly on the back: name, age, title of your artwork, MCPL location that you regularly visit (Downtown, Ellettsville, or Bookmobile), and contact information (including email address and/or telephone number). Ages birth–12.

Interactive Movie: A Goofy Movie

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Downtown Library
Enjoy an interactive screening of the 90's classic movie, A Goofy Movie (1995). An interactive movie is a showing of a movie game that presents gameplay in a cinematic, scripted manner—often through the use of full-motion animated video or live-action footage. Attendees will get a small bag of props at the beginning of the movie to interact with during scripted times.

Though Goofy always means well, his amiable cluelessness and klutzy pratfalls regularly embarrass his awkward adolescent son, Max. When Max's lighthearted prank on his high school principal finally gets his longtime crush, Roxanne, to notice him, he asks her on a date. Max's trouble at school convinces Goofy that he and the boy need to bond over a cross-country fishing trip like the one he took with his dad when he was Max's age, which throws a kink in his son's plans to impress Roxanne. 

Age 5 and up.
