Win a "Year Of Oceania" turtle logo t-shirt!
I've been hearing a lot of you expressing your admiration for the "Year of Oceania" turtle logo. Library Circulation and Interlibrary Loan specialist (and in-house artist) Stephanie Olsen designed the logo based on traditional South Pacific body art designs.
Some of you have also been asking how you can obtain one of those nifty Year of Oceania shirts featuring Stephanie's logo. I am here to tell you how.
Just come to the library and check out a Year Of Oceania book or movie. These are located on the second floor near the circulation desk. Even better, come out to a "Year Of" event. Then write a brief (two- or three-paragraph) summary of the movie, book or event, and submit to either Michael Martinez or Stephanie Olsen at the library by Sept. 28.
You can get started on this project today by attending the screening of the movie Australia, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, in the Hoke O'Kelley auditorium at 2 pm.
Another great opportunity comes up on Thursday, September 16th at 2 pm in the Falany Performing Arts Center. We are very lucky to have Mr. Jon Bowermaster, of the National Geographic Oceans 8 project, coming to speak. Mr. Bowermaster has just returned from nearly three months exploring Antartica by sailboat and sea kayak. You won't want to miss the stories he will have to tell!
If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Olsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck! I hope you all win t-shirts. The Year of Oceania looks great on you!
