Library Star Video Project

Louisville Children and Teens: the Library Star Video Project is your ticket to stardom this summer – and a chance at a $1000 Barnes & Noble family shopping spree courtesy of the Library Foundation!

See more Library Star videos!

To be part of the Library Star Video Project simply email a link of your library-themed YouTube movie to, between May 23 and August 1, and we’ll put it on our website.  The creator of the video that best represents “What the Library Means to Me…” can build their own home library with a $1000 family shopping spree to Barnes & Noble Booksellers at the Summit, courtesy of the Library Foundation. 

To qualify for the Library Star Video Project videos must be:

  • Wholly original and related to the library, books, or reading
  • “Rated” G
  • No more than 3 minutes long
  • Produced by kids, teens, or families from Metro Louisville

Please include your name, contact information, and ages of children involved (info will remain confidential).  Deadline to enter is August 1, 2009.

  • Summer Reading kickoff at the Main Library, May 30, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
  • Iroquois Library, Thursday, June 25, 2 – 3 p.m.
