This exciting contest invites library patrons of all ages to showcase their artistic talents by creating unique and eye-catching bookmarks.

How to Participate:

Participation is easy! Simply pick up an entry form from the library or download it from our website.

A panel of judges will carefully evaluate all entries based on creativity, originality, adherence to the theme (if applicable), and overall aesthetic appeal. Winners will be selected in different categories, including children, teens, and adults, and will receive exciting prizes such as gift cards to local businesses, art supplies, or books.


Community Engagement:

We encourage participation from all members of the community! Whether you're a seasoned artist or just starting out, this contest is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your talents and connect with fellow creatives. We'll also be hosting workshops and tutorials on bookmark design and creation to inspire and assist participants throughout the contest.
