We are excited to announce the grand prize winners of the 2015 Peep Contest! This year the theme was "a famous painting or sculpture."
Congratulations to our "all ages" winner, the Park Hill Teen Advisory Board! They created Denver's big blue bear sculpture, I See What You Mean, with blue Peeps. We loved their creativity and shout-out to Denver!
The "adult" grand prize winner was submitted by a customer at Ross-Cherry Creek who created Peeps Playing Poker. It is an intricate masterpiece with amazing detail.

A library card recently sold at auction for $7500.00. It bore the signature, the earliest known signature, in fact, of eighth-grader Elvis Aaron Presley, and was issued by Humes High School in Memphis in 1948.
