The Color With Your Library collection showcases our vibrant community of artists. Scroll down to find out more about submitting your artwork to this digital collection.

The Galena Public Library welcomes the opportunity to support and promote creativity. Create With Your Library embodies this spirit by showcasing collections that encourage our community to Color, Cook, Explore, Remember, and Read.

Submitting Your Digital Items

Galena residents of all ages are encouraged to submit high-quality digital images of their original artwork and/or videos showing their artistic process. All visual art forms will be accepted.

Those who would like to also display their work in the physical library building are welcome to contact us.

As our digital collection grows, we'll work to organize submissions. Submissions should be your original creation or should be owned by you. We plan to make your submissions available for public viewing, listening, or watching. Poor quality, blurry, or pixelated images will not be accepted.

Submissions must comply with the library collection development policy which can be found at Email with questions.
