The Friends of the Library, in conjunction with Hamilton Public Library, held its 5th annual Bookmark Contest Signing Ceremony on May 10, 2016.  The theme for this year is “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!”  Patricia Keoughan, HISD Art Teacher, used the library’s Summer Reading Program theme to inspire her art students for this year’s project. After receiving many colorful and artistic entries from the children of Hamilton in March, winners were selected.  The award winning students received a certificate, an age-appropriate book, a gel pen and enjoyed a lively reception with family and friends.  The signed, winning bookmarks are now available for purchase at the Library.  Sale of these bookmarks is a small, but important fundraiser for the Friends of the Library.  We invite everyone to visit the library, view all the bookmark entries, purchase those for sale and check out a good book!
