A group of very talented kids and teens created bookmarks to promote our upcoming Summer Reading program. The teen theme this year is “Beneath the Surface” and the kids’ theme is “Dig into Reading.” See the 2013 winners, and be sure to pick up a bookmark when you visit the library!
Summer Reading begins on May 31! Help us get ready by designing an original bookmark based on either the teen theme, ”Beneath the Surface” or the kids’ theme, “Dig Into Reading.” Winners’ artwork from each library will appear on bookmarks to be distributed late spring through summer.
Please design two-dimensional artwork, using crayons, markers or any other illustration tool or medium, or create it on the computer. Photography is also acceptable, as long as it is your own! For ages 3-18. Download an entry form or get one at your library or on the bookmobile.
Entry deadline is Saturday, March 30.
Have you been working hard on your Dream Big reading and activities this summer? Well, never fear, there is still time to finish Summer Reading! We are no longer signing up for the program, but there is still plenty of time for you to finish your hours of reading and activities. For the Little Stars, there are still enough days for you to get all your stickers on the calendar. If you have completed Summer Reading, be sure to drop by your library or bookmobile to get your prize! Summer reading officially ends on August 4, but prizes will still be available until August 16.
