Design a Bookmark Contest

Use your imagination and creativity to design a bookmark based on the theme “Adventure Begins at Your Library.” We will select a winner from each age group (5-10 years old and 11-17 years old) at each of our libraries (8 winners total). Winners will receive a Target gift card and will have their bookmarks printed and available at the library for anyone to pick up!
