The San Juan Island Library is excited to announce the winners of its annual Bookmark Contest! Children from Kindergarten through fifth-grade were invited to celebrate books, reading, and art by participating in the Bookmark Contest. In conjunction with the 2021 Summer Reading Program theme, our young artists created illustrations representing “Tails and Tales,” or chose the overarching theme the “Love of Reading.”

Participants competed in categories by grade level for a chance to see their bookmark designs featured in print at the San Juan Island Library. Our 2021 Bookmark Contest winners are:

• Kindergarten: Bayu King

• First-grade: Griffin Beyers.

• Second-grade: Kai Meehan

• Third-grade: Jodie Wehner

• Fourth-grade: Nadya Troutman

• Fifth-grade: Hazel Johnson

Stop by the Library to pick up a winning bookmark, and to view all of the imaginative contest entries on display in the children’s area during the Library’s open service hours: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a 65-plus/high-risk population hour on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

A tremendous thank you to all of the students who participated, as well as to our public, private, and home schools for distributing bookmark templates and supporting the contest! Winners will receive a gift certificate for Griffin Bay Bookstore. Funding was provided by the Friends of the San Juan Island Library.
