The Charley Harper-inspired 2014 Books by the Banks commemorative event poster was unveiled to the public in September. The poster artwork was created exclusively for the 2014 festival by designer Matthew Dayler with the support of the Harper family. Festival-goers got the chance to meet Charley Harper's son, artist Brett Harper, at the 2014 Books by the Banks!
The Books by the Banks Kids’ Corner was bigger than ever for 2014! The newly expanded space allowed for even more great performers, storytimes, games and crafts. The Kids’ Corner has become a favorite year after year for families visiting Books by the Banks. This year, there were visits by several library mascots and storybook characters, plus many other fun activities.
