Nov. 2 – Mar. 1

The Youth Services Department invites children ages 5 to 13 to submit an entry to their Bookmark Contest, which will run from November 2nd, 2020 to March 1st, 2021.

There will be one winner from each age category (i.e., 5-7, 8-10, 11-13). Only one entry is allowed per child. Entries must be received by Monday, March 1st, 2021.

To submit your entry, use the entry form that may be printed from this page or picked up from Youth Services (in-person or curbside). Return finished designs to the Youth Services desk on the second floor of the Berwyn Public Library.

The Fine Print

Bookmarks will be judged on originality and reproducibility. Entries must be 100% original. No computer generated images are allowed. Please do not use copyrighted images (such as cartoon characters). No tracing or sketching is allowed. All entries must be clear and reproducible. For crayons and colored pencils, make sure colors are filled in and solid. If you include words, please check for correct spelling. There is no theme, so be as creative as you want! If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas, create something library related.

Winning bookmarks become the property of the Berwyn Public Library.  They will be printed and distributed in the Youth Services department at the Berwyn Public Library and a limited quantity will be available.
