(Miami, FL – October 19, 2015) The Miami-Dade Public Library System presents the 2015 Annual Make‑A‑Bookmark Contest. This year’s contest theme will be More than Books @ Your Library. Aside from a great selection of books, what does your library have to offer?

Entries will be judged by library staff, based on originality and best interpretation of the theme. Each branch of the MDPLS will choose a winner from their branch. The Grand Prize Winner will be chosen from this group. A special recognition party will be held on Saturday, December 5 for branch winners and their families. The Grand Prize Winner will have his/her design reproduced for use by the MDPLS. The top‑three winners will receive a basket of art supplies. All entries become the property of the MDPLS.
