  1. Awful Art Contest @ Manitowoc Public Library

    March 16, 2021, All Day @ This Virtual Event will be posted to MPL’s Facebook page:

    Gone are the days of feeling the pressure to make good art. Now is the time to make bad art on purpose! Think Picasso meets “Sharknado!” Or Monet meets “Plan 9 from Outer Space.” It’s the awful artistic expression equivalent of watching a bad movie—painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, or whatever way you decide to express yourself creatively. Email a picture of your appalling artwork to between March 17 and April 15. Everyone will be able to cast their vote for the best of the worst artwork in each category (Family, Teen, and Adult) on MPL's Facebook page ( via reaction (“Like,” Love,” etc.) starting on April 19. Winners will be generously rewarded for their stinky art skills! Visit for all the details. Disclaimer: This contest is intended strictly for lighthearted fun!

  2. Let’s Talk About Books: A Book Discussion for Adults Via Zoom

    March 16, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ This Event Will Take Place Via Zoom

    Manitowoc Public Library’s online book discussion for adults is back in March and this time out, we’re going back to focusing on a single title: “Nothing to See Here,” by Kevin Wilson, a novel that revolves around an exploration of friendship, trust, and twins that spontaneously combust when they get agitated! The discussion will convene via Zoom on Tuesday, March 16, at 11:00 AM. Registration is required and opens up on March 1 on the “Events” calendar at Only ten spots will be available! A Waiting List will be in place should people decide not to participate. Place a hold on the book, pick it up in-library or Curbside, or check into an e-reader version. Looking forward to seeing you on Zoom! You will be sent the link for the Zoom meeting, along with the discussion questions close to March 16th. Time to get back to talking books!
