Library card design contest open to children and youth

The Public Library Service is inviting Island children and youth to enter its library card design contest.  

The winning design will be featured on a limited-edition library card and the winner will receive a $25 gift card to The Bookmark.  Submissions will be accepted until November 14, 2022.

“October is library month and to help celebrate this, Island children and youth are encouraged to take part in our library card design contest. Today's libraries are more than just books, they also play a huge role in the lives of Island families and our communities. They connect people to information and connect people to people.”
