On April 12, the Northwestern Regional Library system held an awards reception for the 10th anniversary “Show Us Your Best” photography contest and also hosted a photography workshop at the Charles H. Stone Memorial Library in Pilot Mountain. The winning entries will remain at the library in Pilot Mountain until the end of April before embarking on a tour where they will be displayed at various NWRL libraries throughout the four counties. The exhibit will be at the Charles H. Stone Memorial Library until April 30 and then it will be at the Mount Airy Public Library until the end of May.
