'My Bookmark Gallery' is now live

During Melbourne lockdown we ran a competition asking children to design a library bookmark. The competition theme was inspired by an artwork from library book-clubber, Jaxon, and we asked children to think about What they treasure about books and reading

To our incredible delight we received a total of 92 artworks, each made with great care, thought and creativity.
