Bookmark contest draws children into libraries
  
Toronto Public Library -- Toronto kids ages 13 and under are invited to help
kick off Canadian Children's Book Week (November 3 to 10) by creating a design
for the Laurentien Design-a-Bookmark contest. The contest is on until December
15 at all branches and bookmobiles of Toronto Public Library.

"The contest draws kids into the library with a fun and creative activity,"
explains City Librarian Josephine Bryant. "It is an activity that naturally
becomes associated with a love of books. We are particularly pleased to have
Laurentien, makers of colouring products for children, as the presenting
sponsor."

Offered at Toronto libraries for many years, the bookmark contest gives kids a
chance to win prizes ranging from backpacks full of Laurentien colouring
products to books. Each of 16 grand prize winners will have their bookmark
produced and distributed at library branches across the city.

Drop into your local branch of the library to find out about more fun Canadian
Children's Book Week events, including a chance for kids to meet Kevin Major,
Robin Muller, Tim Wynne Jones and other favourite children's authors. Or check
