Like the folks at TOC, we’re big fans of the Chicago Public Library’s latest ad campaign, “Not What You Think,” which features tattooed librarians and music-mixing grandmas, all in the name of highlighting the cooler side of the shush-happy sanctuaries.
Now you can get in on the action by entering CPL’s new poster-design contest, open until April 9. The only stipulation is that you need to use the URL chipublib.org somewhere in your art; the rest is up to you. The contest will be judged by Jay Ryan (The Bird Machine) and others, and the winner will get his or her poster displayed around the city. Of course, it’s all free; the library wouldn’t have it any other way.
