Bookmark competition

This year’s ‘Silly Squad’ Summer Reading Challenge is all about fun, happiness and having a laugh! To celebrate, we are inviting children between the ages of 4 and 11 to design a bookmark on the theme of ‘why my library makes me happy’. We'll then choose one winning bookmark design in the 4 - 7 years category and one in the 8 - 11 years category, to be turned into real bookmarks and made available to all our library customers!

We’d like the winning designs to show why your think your library is so much fun! Your design could be inspired by a brilliant book you have borrowed, your favourite author or book character, a fun activity or event you have taken part in at a library or by a person who works at your library. Let your imagination run wild!
