Make Your Mark


Platteville Public Library Bookmark Contest

Celebrate the library by designing our summer library program bookmark.
Winning bookmarks will be professionally printed and handed out at the library as our official summer library program bookmark.
Entry forms can be downloaded as a pdf or picked up at the library.


Winners will be chosen from each of these categories:

  • Birth-kindergarten
  • 1st-6th grade
  • 7th-12th grade
  • Adult (ages 19+)


The theme for 2024 bookmark is Adventure Begins at Your Library.


  • You may submit multiple entries.
  • Your artwork should be created by you and only you – we can’t print trademarked characters.
  • Your bookmark design can be vertical or horizontal.
  • The winning bookmarks will be scanned and printed. You may use any materials in your design, but your design should be flat so that we can scan it. Intense colors will print better than pale colors.
