Bookmark Contest Winners Announced!


We’re excited to announce the winners of this year’s Bookmark Contest! Talented young artists from around Austin entered their best work to the contest, which asked them to draw a bookmark based on their favorite book. Four categories were judged: Kindergarten, Grades 1 & 2, Grades 3 & 4, and Grades 5 & 6. All of the artwork submitted to the contest is currently on display in our BookPeople Cafe, come take a look!

  1. What a beautiful “collection”! Your picture looks like a title sequence from a Wes Anderson film if that makes any sense?!

    Reminds me of a Haiku by Issa
