Calling all young artists! Your La Jolla library needs your talents!

The Riford Library is hosting a Bookmark Art Contest, now through May 31, for students in grades kindergarten through 12. Winners will be pulled from three divisions: K-5, grades 6-9 and grades 10-12. The theme is Summer Reading. Judges are looking for original art with “ideas we have not seen before,” that ideally include the words, “La Jolla Library,” somewhere in the design.

Chosen work will have the artist’s name and age printed on the final bookmark. Entry forms are available at the library, 7555 Draper Ave. The art project dimensions are 2-inches wide by 8-inches long.
