Help Name the Library Lion Cubs
Our newly renovated Children’s Library at the Central Library in Copley Square features three glowing lion cub statues. We’re looking for some creative names for our three new friends.
Write a name for each of the three cubs on the downloadable entry form, and use the blank space on the back of the form to write a letter to the three cubs explaining why you chose their names. Entries will be judged on creativity and on the explanation. Three winners will be selected and recognized at our Lion Cub Naming Ceremony on Tuesday, April 21, at 3:30 p.m.
This contest is open to all children in grades 5 and under. Children may submit multiple entries. Entries must be submitted by Saturday, March 21. Paper forms can be returned to any Boston Public Library location, and electronic forms can be emailed to email@example.com.

Calling All Creative Kids and Teens: New Winter and Spring Programs

The arts take center stage at several branches as the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts offers series in woodworking, visual arts, and fiber arts. Fashion-forward teens and tweens can explore Fashion Tales, an exciting program melding design and reading, or dance along with the Boston Ballet.
