Do you have a budding young artist at your house? Starting March 1, entries will be accepted for the Fargo Public Library’s annual “Design-a-Bookmark Contest” for kids. The contest, to help celebrate March’s designation as Youth Art Month, is open to kids ages birth through age 12. The contest runs March 1 through March 31; entry forms and contest rules can be picked up at any Fargo Public Library location and are also available on the library’s website. Entries will be accepted at all three library locations and must be turned in on or before Saturday, March 31. Three winners will be selected – one for each age group: 0 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years, and 9 to 12 years; children can submit up to three designs. All design entries will be displayed in the children’s department at the Main Library. Library staff will vote to determine the winners of the contest; winners will be announced April 6. Winning bookmark designs will be printed and distributed at all three library locations over the next year. For further information, visit the library’s website or call the Children’s Librarian at 241-1495.
Many other programs and events are planned as part of Youth Art Month at the library. For a list of upcoming Fargo Public Library events, visit the library’s website, www.fargolibrary.org.
