From April 6, through April 22, the Troy Public Library is sponsoring a Name the Café contest. Library users are invited to submit a name for the Library’s new vending café, which is scheduled to be open in May.
There is no official entry form. You can submit your suggestion via email to Library Director Cathy Russ at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the proposed name, and your name and contact information in the email.
On or around April 24, a panel of judges – including the Library Director, the City’s Assistant City Manager, the Friends of the Library President, and a member of the Library Advisory Board – will choose the winning name. A sign with the name and an acknowledgement to the winner will be displayed in the café.
Earlier this year, the Library sponsored a contest among staff to pick a quote to display in the new café. The winner was Technical Services aide Anna Brodak. Her winning submission was “Libraries have become my candy store,” from Julie Kimball, literacy advocate.
