Upcoming Wall Words Contest:

The Guttenberg Library Board of Trustees invites members of the community to start thinking about short, recognizable literary quotes, quotes by authors, or famous quotes about libraries.  The board is looking for two suitable quotes to place on the walls of the library over the fiction and computer sections. One quote by Dr. Seuss - “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” -  has already been placed in the children’s area.

Suggestions for quotes need to be submitted by February 21, 2015.  Patrons may drop off the suggestions at the library desk or email them to Please type “quote suggestion” in the subject line of the email.  Please include your name, address, and phone number.

At the end of February, the library board will select some of the quotes which could be used as wall words. The public will then have a chance to vote for the winning quotes during March. 

The winner(s) will be announced in April during National Library Week, April 12 – 18, 2015.  The people who submit the winning quotes will receive a prize, and will have their suggested quotes applied to the library walls.
