Congratulations to Chloe B. and Kate A. for having their bookmark designs chosen from the Manhattan Beach branch of the County of Los Angeles Public Library system! Chloe received 1st Place in the 3rd-5th grade category and Kate received 2nd Place in the K-2nd grade category. They will be honored at a Manhattan Beach City Council Meeting ceremony on December 18th. The celebration continues afterwards at the library with gift bags of treats, Barnes & Noble gift cards, and 50 copies of their bookmark design to share with friends and family.
The Los Angeles County Public Library is sponsoring its annual Children's Bookmark Contest. This year's theme is Picture the Adventure -- Read! Submissions are due to the public library by October 29, 2011. You can download a contest entry form below, pick one up at the Manhattan Beach public library, or download one from the public library's website.

Please read the rules carefully before submitting your entries. You can take it directly to the Manhattan Beach library or you can drop your entry off at the Robinson Library. I will make sure it gets to Ms. Messner, the Children's Librarian at the public library.
