Young Artist Selected for Library Card Design

Carpinteria High School junior Iltze Alvarado’s colorful design has been selected for the new Carpinteria Library card. When the library completes its transition to a City of Carpinteria facility next summer, Iltze’s artwork will be on the new card that all patrons receive. Art contest organizers Friends of the Carpinteria Library and the Carpinteria Arts Center thank all of the talented young artists who submitted their designs for the contest. Ten semifinalist designs were selected and posted in the Arts Center front windows in October for local residents to vote their choice for best design. These ten were created by Iltze Alvarado, Evelyn Calkins, Valerie Carillo, Crystal Echeverria, Travis Holmstrom, James Keyser, Julie Maya, Anna Petersen, Whitney Welch and Lacey Zimmerman.
