“Name the Middletown Mermaid” Contest

We’re excited to announce a new contest here at the Middletown Public Library!  Beginning January 3rd, 2012,  children ages 4-12 will have the chance to enter our “Name the Middletown Mermaid” contest.  The winner will receive a $25 gift card to Island Books!  Entry cards can be picked up at the Children’s Desk.

The Middletown Mermaid has been watching over the Children’s Department since October of 2011.   Created by local children and paper artist Lisa May at Harborfest’s community arts tent for children at the Newport Yachting Center on October 1st and 2nd, the Middletown Mermaid is a beautiful papier-mâché sculpture adorned and festooned with seashells.  It was thoughtfully donated to the library by Lisa May and Festival Fete, which sponsors locally grown art, food, and merriment.

RULES:

  • Open to children ages 4-12
  • Limited to two entries per eligible person
  • Entries must be submitted to the Children’s Department of the Middletown Public Library by January 31st, 8pm EST
