New Library Card designed by Live Oak Student

Live Oak student Maya, won the Library Card Artwork Design contest. Her design, “Living Guide to Butterflies”, will be featured on new San Francisco Public Library cards next year. Maya described her design as “a representation of how books bring stories to ife.” In all, more than 3500 designs were submitted to a panel of judges who arrowed the contenders to just 10 in each of five age-based categories. City residents then cast more than 14,000 online votes for the finalists, with Maya’s work the favorite in the Middle School category.

“It was great to see such an amazing array of wonderful artwork from all ages, created by our extremely talented community. We can’t wait to see these designs gracing our library cards next year for San Franciscans to choose from, “ said City Librarian Luis Herrera. “Having a library card empowers our users to be life-long learners and readers.” There are more than 400,000 San Francisco library cards in active circulation. San Francisco Public Library issues about 60,000 new cards each year.
