McKINNEY, Texas (April 1, 2015) – Show off your artistic talents by entering the Make Your Mark bookmark design contest hosted by the City of McKinney and Friends of the McKinney Public Library System. The Make Your Mark bookmark contest is open to all ages and is not limited to McKinney residents.
Entry forms and the required bookmark template can be found on the city’s website or at the Roy & Helen Hall Memorial Library, 101 E. Hunt St., and the John & Judy Gay Library, 6861 W. Eldorado Pkwy. Artwork must be submitted by April 30 to either library. One winner will be chosen from each age group (0-5 years, 6-12 years, 13-17 years, and adults) and have their original bookmark artwork printed and distributed at McKinney’s public libraries. Winners will be chosen by the Friends of the McKinney Public Library System and will be announced in June.
The Make Your Mark bookmark design contest is part of the city’s celebration of National Library Week, April 12-18, which is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.
“We want to celebrate the powerful and positive impact that libraries and librarians have on the lives of citizens,” said Beth Bormann, Interim Library Director. “We know this area is filled with talented individuals, and we hope this contest is a way to show off that talent and raise awareness for all the resources the McKinney Public Libraries have to offer.”
