2023 Chinese New Year Art Show is back!

Children and teens in Grades K-8 are welcome to submit a piece of artwork for the library’s 3rd annual Chinese New Year Art Show.

The theme of this year’s art show is Our Community! Each piece of artwork will be hung on the bulletin boards in the Children’s Department, and will be juried by library staff, volunteers, and local artists.

We invite artists of Summit and surrounding communities, including Berkeley Heights, Chatham, Madison, Millburn/Short Hills, Mountainside, New Providence, Springfield, and Westfield to participate in the Summit Free Public Library’s 2023 Lunar New Year Art Show! Students attending private schools in these towns are also welcome.
