Megan Weatherford, winner of the PINES 20th anniversary library card design contest, and Watkinsville/Oconee County librarian Ms. Rebecca.

Megan’s design is made from her son’s handprint in finger paint. She chose hands because “they say so much about the service PINES provides each and every day to our community. Hands hold books. Hands do research. Hands guide and teach. Hands help others. Hands hold a community together. Most of all, for my son and I, hands say THANK YOU!”

She shared that as a new mother, she took her baby to infant storytime led by librarian Ms. Rebecca. “At every event we attend, Rebecca creates the most magical and accepting environment. Not only has my son had the opportunity to hear songs and stories and to socialize with other children, I have had the chance to grow and be pulled out of my shell as a new mother.”

The limited edition card will be available across the 53 PINES library systems (including 300 branches across Georgia) in 6-8 weeks.

We loved seeing the variety of designs and learning about the many reasons that people across Georgia value PINES resources. Thank you to everyone who entered the contest!
