The Newark Public Library held a special bear cub mascot-naming contest for its new "Kids’ Place" Web site. The panel of judges, headed by Michele Cappetta, youth services coordinator, has selected the winning entry from more than one thousand suggestions. The winner was Jessica Silva, who chose the name Corky.

Jessica is a patron of the Van Buren branch library. She is eleven years old and a seventh-grade student at Wilson Avenue School. Her winning prize was a Barnes and Noble gift certificate and a replica "Corky" Beanie Baby.
