Annual Shakespeare Competition
All Library locations will be closed on Saturday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
Area high school students bring Shakespeare’s work to life through their unique interpretation of his monologues and sonnets. The competition, created by the English Speaking Union, aims to develop students’ speaking and critical thinking skills as they explore Shakespeare.
Previous winners have gone on to win the national competition in New York, where the winner is awarded a full tuition scholarship to the British American Drama Academy’s Midsummer Conservatory Program.
