Kids Bookmark Contest!

2024 marks the 9th year of the beloved Kids Bookmark Contest at Emma Clark Library! The contest asks children living in the Three Village Central School District from Kindergarten through 6th grade to design original bookmarks for library patrons.

Winners receive the incredible honor of having their bookmarks professionally printed. Community members may then take home a copy of one or more of the winning bookmarks!

Or if you prefer, stop by the Children’s Reference Desk for a copy. There is a limit of 1 entry per child. 

The entry deadline is March 30, 2024. Winners will be chosen in three categories (K – 2nd, 3rd & 4th, and 5th & 6th grades) and announced on Wednesday, May 1. All contestants’ entries are displayed in the Children’s Department for visitors to view.

Our Librarians cannot wait to see the all the creative entries!

Last year’s winners (featured in photo) were Nayonika S. (Setauket Elementary) in the grades K – 2 category; Catherine Y. (Minnesauke Elementary) in the grades 3 & 4 category; and Cindy Z. (Minnesauke Elementary) in the grades 5 & 6 category.
