    ATTENTION ARTISTS: The Brooklyn Public Library is looking for a new library card design. They are specifically looking for a work of art that celebrates Black American culture and history! What started as a proposal from Wendy A. Robinson of the Community Board 3’s Parks, Arts & Culture Committee is now the first in a series of “Celebrating Heritage” library cards.

    Submissions are open until January 31st. You can learn more about the art requirements on their website. Still have questions? The BPL, as always, has your back: There’s a virtual information session tonight at 5PM EST.

    Oh, and did we mention—the artist of the chosen piece gets $2,000? Thank you to public libraries for offering what the latest stimulus checks do not.
