The Stanislaus County Library will again offer the Anime Day bookmark contest in anticipation of the annual Anime Day event on Saturday, Oct. 19 from noon to 4 p.m. Young artists ages 10 to 18 are invited to submit an original, anime-themed bookmark for a chance to be featured on this year’s Anime Day bookmark.
Entry forms with full details and rules can be found at all Stanislaus County Library locations, as well as online at www.stanislauslibrary.org. All entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1. The winner will be announced as part of the Anime Day ceremonies on Oct. 19 at 1 p.m.
“This is our fourth annual bookmark contest and the number of submissions has increased every year, which is exciting because it means more tweens and teens are getting the opportunity to let their artistic abilities shine,” said Brian Lillie, library assistant in the Children’s and Teen Services Department.
Anime Day will be held in the Community Room of the Nick. W. Blom Salida Regional Library from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 19. The event will feature food, crafts, activities, and more. Cosplay is welcome, but not required. Anime Day is sponsored by the Stanislaus Library Foundation. For more information, contact the Children’s and Teen Services Department at 209-558-7810.
