Outside The Lines Twitter Photo Challenge


Outside The Lines Twitter Photo Challenge

Barrie Public Library is excited to participate in Outside the Lines from September 11-17, a weeklong celebration demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries.

We're inviting local schools to participate in this event through a Twitter photo challenge! The winning class will win a private Tinker Lab session and pizza lunch at the library.

Classrooms can participate by painting large-scale quotes from their favourite books, or creating a mural of what the library means to them, onto a banner with paint or onto a sidewalk, parking lot, or building façade with standard chalk or chalk paint. Photos can be tweeted to the @BPL_inthecity Twitter account using the hashtags #getOTL and #myBPL between September 11 to 17. View our easy (and fun!) to make chalk paint recipe

The winning classroom will be selected by a panel of artists.
