Library announces winners of bookmark contest
Press Release March 28, 2001

The Newark Public Library held a bookmark-creating contest during last Novemberís National Childrenís Book Week. Thanks to a $1200 grant from the Friends of The Newark Public Library, the top three bookmark designs have been printed in full color. The bookmarks will be distributed to patrons--free of charge--at all library childrenís rooms during National Library Week, April 1-7.

"In addition to the honor of having their bookmarks printed professionally," said Michele Cappetta, library youth services coordinator, "the three winners also received a book." All entrants received a library water bottle.

The three winners were:

  • First prize: Choose a book from the tree of knowledge, designed by Janice Delaney, an eighth-grader at Oliver Street School and patron of the Van Buren branch library.
  • Second prize: Begin Life With A Book, designed by Michelle Amador, a tenth-grader at Arts High School and patron of the Van Buren branch.
  • Third prize: Read, designed by Santiago Paniagua, a fifth-grader at New Horizon School and patron of the Springfield branch library.

The three winning bookmarks, plus a selection of other entries, may also be viewed by clicking on the Kidsí Place website found on The Newark Public Libraryís home page (www.npl.org), then selecting In the Spotlight.
