The Carbon Library has just wrapped up their annual Community Calendar Contest and they had some tough decisions to make.

"Last year we asked the public, and this year we asked the kids in school to take a picture and submit them. The library board chooses the top three and then they narrow it down to one," explained Carbon's Head Librarian Jay-Lynn Boutin.

Wylie Merrill was the winner with his picture of an old wooden wagon in a farmer's field.

The calendar features one picture for the year and removable months. The months also feature the dates of many community events happening during the year.

After purchasing the calendar, you are automatically put in for a draw of $100.

"For every month, we give away $1,200 and the rest we use for the making of the calendar, and what's left after that goes back into the operations of the library" continued Boutin.

"The first batch will be ready at our Octoberfest breakfast, which will be October 20th, they are twenty dollars each and that gives you a chance to win a draw. And then after that, you can pick them up at the Credit Union in town, or at the library," concluded Boutin.
