Staff at the Burlington Library are excited.  One of their pet project drew 270 entries – a record for them/

It’s time to vote for your favourite contenders in Burlington Public Library’s (BPL’s) annual Burlington Bookmarks contest. The library received a record number of entries this year—over 270—and they need your help. Librarians selected four finalists in each age group, and now it’s up to the public to choose the winners. The winning bookmark from each age category will be printed and distributed at BPL branches while supplies last.

16 Finalists
This year’s theme is “be inspired by your favourite book.” Artists got creative with this prompt and submitted bookmarks inspired by children’s books, novels, and even self-help titles. Among the 16 finalists are bookmarks based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Finalists for the 5 and under category

Finalists for the 6 – 12 category

Finalists for the 13 to 17 category


Finalists for the 18 and over category

How to Vote
You can vote on BPL’s website .

Select your favourite bookmark from each age category and submit your ballot. Only one ballot will be accepted for each IP address. Voting closes March 1st, and the winners will be revealed soon after.

Pick Up a Placeholder for Your Book
The four winning bookmarks will be professionally printed and distributed to library branches for customers to enjoy in their next great read. These bookmarks are always a hot commodity, so make sure you don’t miss out. Keep tabs on the contest by checking the library’s website and social media channels (@BurlOn) to be the first to know when the bookmarks are available.

    These are all just fantastic and it’s very hard to choose only one from each category! Amazing artists we have!
