101519 Bookmark Contest

What Inspires You? SYV Libraries' 2019 bookmark contest awards 15 young artist.

As part of a bookmark designing contest for youth held in September, the Buellton and Solvang libraries are inviting the public to view the winning submissions on display at both libraries, and take a few works of art home — in the form of bookmarks.

According to a library spokeswoman, children from all over the Santa Ynez Valley responded to the local libraries’ bookmark drawing contest with an overarching theme of “What inspires you?”

Among the submissions, 15 entries were chosen by a blind panel and are now on display at the Solvang and Buellton libraries.

The winners' artwork was also printed on bookmarks available to library visitors.

The Buellton Library, located at 140 W. Highway 246, and the Solvang Library, located at 1745 Mission Drive, are part of the Goleta Valley Library system.
