Library video challenge

Torrance Library Centennial Video Contest Entries (2013)

In 2013, in honor of the Torrance Public Library’s Centennial, the Library organized a video challenge. We asked patrons to tell us why the Torrance Public Library is important to them in creative short film. Submissions were judged by a panel of Torrance citizens and prizes were awarded in three separate categories: Youth – grades 8 and under, Teen – grades 9 through 12, and Adult – age 18 and over. Below are links to the videos submitted. We hope you enjoy them!
