DIY Guitar Designs

Earlier this summer teens from all branches of the Santa Clarita Public Library created their own guitar designs from materials supplied as part of our 2015 Summer Reading Program “Read to the Rhythm.”

Participants entered their designs in our contest vying for a chance at an acoustic guitar.

The top design from each branch has been selected (pictured above). Join us at our Jamboree Finale on Saturday, July 25th to congratulate the winner of DIY guitar. The winners of the Teen Grand Prizes will also be announced at Jamboree.

Take a look at the many creative designs submitted.
