The Kearny Public Library celebrated National Library Week (April 10th-14th) by holding a Bookmark Contest! This year’s theme was “Libraries Transform.” After all the entries were received, a panel of judges chose the best 5 bookmarks from each grade level. The 5 finalists were then posted in the library and our patrons were asked to cast ballots for their favorite design in each grade. We then added up the votes to determine the top three winners from each grade. In some cases winners tied for 3rd place so both became winners.
At our annual Open House on Thursday, April 13th we gave out the winner’s certificates and prize bags. We also had videos to raffle off to two of our patrons, who were all asked to fill out a ticket for each day that they used our library during National Library Week. Our video winners for this year were:
Elizabeth Hammer—Hacksaw Ridge
We would like to thank all of our faithful patrons who helped us celebrate National Library Week, and who voted for our winners.
