White River High School student Dillon Hadaway, 14, is the winner of the Pierce County Library System’s teen library card design contest.

His design will appear on more than 10,000 new library cards starting Oct. 1, when the Library System launches its fifth annual card drive. The cards are free.
A total of 138 teen artists from Pierce County participated in the card competition.

Hadaway’s winning artwork features a vibrantly colored retro design that crafts together library words, book titles and authors to form a mosaic floral design. He created the computer-generated artwork in Adobe Photoshop as a graphic design project in a school art class with teacher Nick Cochran.
