Imagination Initiative is a way to get kids involved in their local libraries. Youth were invited to draw their own storybook character from their imagination. Characters were reviewed by the Boulder Teen Advisory Board. Highest rated and selected artwork has been made into wall graphics for placement around the library system. Children and their caregivers will be invited to the library to see creations invented by their communities and themselves. Characters created through public engagement and transformed into digital assets were made into a scavenger hunt with prizes.
You can find this scavenger hunt at every Boulder Public Library branch from Dec. 18 through Feb. 28.
