Bookmark Design Contest

Bookmark Design Contest

In celebration of our Summer Reading Club 2018, we are asking patrons ages 15+ to help design the next Library bookmark to give out! From April 2nd - 30th, artists can submit original artwork to be considered. On May 4th, designs will be reviewed by a panel of judges consisting of Library staff and members of the Friends of the Longview Public Library. The winner will be announced on Facebook at 5:00 PM! The winning design will be printed and distributed during SRC 2018, and the winner will also receive a $10 gift card to Corner Bakery Cafe! Bookmark templates are available inside the Library, or you may download and print one here! For more info, please call (903) 237-1351 and ask for Wesly or (903) 237-1349 and ask for Marjorie.
