2012 Bookmark Design Contest

Thom Mazak

The Lake County Library System is proud to announce the 13th annual Bookmark Design Contest for Lake County K-12 students and adults. This year’s theme is “In the Reading Garden” to compliment the theme of our Festival of Reading. March 26th – 31st the Lake County Library System will present the Festival of Reading 2012, In the Garden. This year we will feature books that celebrate the garden's role in inspiring love, hiding secrets, holding a key to the past and a path to the future.

Each contest entry should illustrate the artist’s concept of the Reading Garden. All students (K-12) and adults in Lake County are encouraged to enter as many times as they wish. The awards will be announced at the annual Authors’ Reception, March 30th in at 7 p.m. in the new Lady Lake Public Library. The winning bookmark designs will then be available at all 15 libraries in the Lake County Library System, and will be printable from the library system’s web site. Prizes will include gift cards for 1st - 3rd prize winners.

Entry forms and guidelines are available on the web site at under “News and Events”, or picked up at any Lake County Library System library. Deliver completed entry form with your original bookmark design to any of the library locations.
