County Mobile Library Stops
Art is transformational. Paint, ink, and canvas turn into an image that touches lives through the years. We want to see your take on the theme Transformation this year. Show us how art impacts your life, or how it transforms the world around you.
When will I know if I have won?
We will notify participants by mid-March if they have won an award. All participants and their friends and family are invited to the Awards Ceremony on Sunday, April 2 at 2 p.m. at Library 21c in the Venue regardless of if they won an award.
When can I pick up my artwork?What are the prizes?
We award prizes for Coordinator’s Choice, 1st place, and 2nd place for the high school and middle school age groups. We also award a prize for Best in Show, which is the piece that received the highest score out of both Middle and High School. In the past, winners received a drawing mannequin and gift card to Meininger’s Art Supply store.
What can I do to improve my chances at winning?
Do I have to have a frame?
No, but we highly encourage it. Pieces are not judged on if a frame is present or not, but frames help protect your artwork during storage and transportation.
My question wasn’t answered here.

Dear Library Patron,
We love being in your neighborhood – and like any good neighbor, we want to support our fellow families and friends. We are excited to provide all Pikes Peak Library District supporters with a CPK Philanthropizza Card.
Every time you use this card, 20%* of your net food and beverage purchases will be donated back to Pikes Peak Library District. It’s easy – the more you visit CPK, the more money we donate. It makes raising money to support your organization’s efforts a piece of cake…or pizza!
All you need to do is visit our CPK location in The Promenade Shops at Briargate November 1, 2016 through February 28, 2017 and present the Philanthropizza card to your server at the end of your meal. Cards are available at all PPLD locations. Dine in the restaurant with us, try take-out or catering; any way you order helps the library. Either way, we look forward to seeing you very soon.
If you haven’t been in to see us recently, be sure to check out our newly reimagined menu featuring fresh, seasonally inspired ingredients and inventive Main Plates like a new Fire-Grilled Ribeye, Hearth-Roasted Halibut, and our new Lunch Duos. Drink the unique as well with our hand-crafted cocktails and selection of regional beers and California premium wines. Of course, the classic hand-tossed artisan pizzas and unique pastas and salads you love are still here.

The Human Library is a concept created by the Danish youth organization Stop The Violence in 2000. It is now operational on five continents. A library of human beings, the Human Library is a collection of people from all walks of life. Individuals serve as human ‘books’ and participants can ‘read’ the book by engaging in a conversation with the book on loan. The Human Library aims to establish a safe conversational space where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and hopefully answered.
PPLD is seeking books to help us cultivate our Human Library. To apply to be a Human Library book, click here for the online application or print out the application below and bring it to any library location. Applications due December 10, 2016.
PPLD will host a Human Library event on Sunday, March 19 at 1 p.m. at Penrose Library, 20 N. Cascade Ave.
