Emma Clark Library’s 2017 bookmark winners Lorenzo, Dhikshika and Ashlynn display their winning entries.

Kids in the Three Village Central School District can help encourage the community to read through their talents and creativity.

Emma S. Clark Memorial Library is once again calling all children in the district, from kindergarten through sixth grade, to create an original bookmark for entry into a special bookmark contest.

Winners will receive the honor of having their bookmarks printed and distributed at the library throughout the year, just like the 2017 bookmark champions Lorenzo, Dhikshika and Ashlynn. In previous years, the library has received approximately 60 entries annually, and it hopes to see more in 2018.

To pick up an official entry form and bookmark template, kids may stop by the children’s reference desk or download the form at kids.emmaclark.org. The entry deadline is March 31.

Winners will be announced May 1 and chosen in three categories: kindergarten through second, third and fourth grades, and fifth and sixth grades.

For more information, email [email protected] or call 631-941-4080, ext. 123. The Emma S. Clark Memorial Library is located at 120 Main St., Setauket.
