Design a Bookmark Contest
Help us get ready for Summer Reading by designing an original bookmark based on the teen theme, “Spark a Reaction.” Winners’ artwork from each library will appear on bookmarks to be distributed late spring through summer. Please design two-dimensional artwork using crayons, markers or any other medium or create it on the computer. Photography is also acceptable, as long as it is your own! You can download an entry form, or pick one up at one of our three branch locations or bookmobile stops. Entry deadline is Monday, March 31.

Awards will be given in three age categories: 5-8, 9-12 and 13-18. You can download an entry form, or pick one up at the library or bookmobile. Entries are due April 14. An awards ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. on May 1 at the Callaway County Public Library. Co-sponsored by the Auxvasse Creative Arts Program.
Doodle 4 Google Competition
Before there was an airplane, there were doodles of cool flying machines. And before there was a submarine, there were doodles of magical underwater sea explorers. Since the beginning of time, ideas big and small, practical and playful, have started out as doodles. And we’re ready for more. One talented young artist (grades K-12) will see his or her artwork on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school. Closing date for entries is next Thursday, March 20th. Visit google.com/doodle4google to learn more.
