Book Display Contest

Almost a hundred branches across the Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Public Library systems have created displays around the theme of The Creative City to compete in the Culture Pass citywide book display contest. Now, we’re asking YOU to help us narrow it down to a list of top finalists. From now until 5:00 PM on Sunday, March 26th, you can cast a vote for up to five of your favorites in each of the three library systems.


The most buzzworthy displays from across the five boroughs will advance to the final round at the end of the month, where a jury of artists, creatives, and cultural leaders will select a first place winner and first runner-up from each of the three library systems, and then name one of the three system-wide winners the best book display citywide.
