Summer Reading Program 2022


We're getting ready for our Summer Reading Program, which means it's time for the Hingham Public Library’s 14th summer art contest!

The Hingham Public Library invites children (ages 3 - 18) to create art reflecting our 2022 theme, READ BEYOND THE BEATEN PATH. All art forms are welcome — drawing, painting, 3-D, sculpture, etc. Use your imagination and have fun!

Please e-mail a digital copy of your artwork to Artists are invited to bring their finished pieces to the library where they will be on display for the summer.

Two winners, drawn at random, will win a $25 gift card. Artwork submissions will be featured on the library website. Selected images will be included on our summer program materials and in our summer e-mails.

Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, May 31, 2022.

All submissions must be accompanied by a permission slip - available here.
