Comox teen wins video contest

David Krismer of Comox topped his age category in the Vancouver Island Regional Library’s I Love My Library teen video contest.

Krismer took first place in the 13- to 15-year-old division with an entry called VIRL 21st Century Library.

Other top-three finishers were from Qualicum Beach, Parksville, Nanaimo and Duncan.

The contest was part of VIRL’s 75th anniversary celebration. In a news release, VIRL said the contest attracted an interesting variety and number of submissions.

“We were impressed with the creativity and quality of the entries,” said Jennifer Windecker, VIRL’s manager of children and youth services.

“Teenagers are the ones who can honestly tell us the impression their library is making — or not making — on them. We’re always very interested in their opinions, and the teen video contest was one way to solicit their input.

“The future of libraries is tomorrow’s adults and, believe it or not, tomorrow’s adults are today’s teenagers.”

The videos can be viewed at www.virl.bc.ca.
