Bookmark Contest

Children grades Pre-K to 6th grade can submit an original drawing with the Summer theme of Tails & Tales. Winning designs will be printed as the official Rolla Public Library Summer Bookmarks for 2021 and will be used throughout the year starting June 1st. Winners will be selected from 3 groups to ensure an equal representation of artwork from all age groups. Stop by the Library to get your form today OR use the printable form below.
