Kids in grades K through 8, design an original bookmark using the theme "Cool Reads." You may create your bookmark using crayons, markers, colored pencils, or pen and ink.

All bookmarks will be displayed on our library website and on digital frames throughout the library. Three winners will be selected from each grade. Winners will have their entry printed for distribution at the Vernon Area Public Library and will receive five for their own use. Good luck, and have fun!

Stuffed Animal Sleepover PDF Print

alt

At our recent "Stuffed Animal Sleepover" program at the the library, we celebrated the favorite stuffed friends of our youngest patrons.  Rabbits, dogs, and teddy bears of all colors and sizes were guests at our library. Families enjoyed a story and then tucked their favorite stuffed friends into bed.  You wouldn't believe the things our new animal friends did when the library closed for the night!

Visit our Flickr set for some eye-popping pictures of the stuffed animal library takeover.
