Every year in January, the library hosts a systemwide Bookmark Contest where Kids get to draw a bookmark representing the Summer Reading Program theme. This year, our theme is “Reading is So Delicious”.
This was my first time working the Bookmark Contest since last year I wasn’t yet an employee of GPL. As the newbie who always says “yes”, I got the honor of acting as coordinator for the whole program – not really an easy task when you’ve never done it before, but it seemed to go quite well for the most part. The judges were our Arts & Culture Program Supervisor and her assistant. After the winners were selected, their art was reproduced system wide on *obviously* bookmarks and we displayed all the entries in the hallway of the Central Library for all to see.
Check out the winners, and *my* personal favorite.
