Centennial Bookmark Contest
On February 24, 2021, the Heritage Library will turn 100 years old and the Library District will celebrate 100 years of library service. Help us commemorate the Centennial by designing a bookmark! A winner will be selected from each age group, and copies of the winning bookmarks will be distributed beginning in September 2020. Download and print a copy of the Centennial Bookmark Contest Entry Form or request an entry form the next time you use Curbside Pick Up at your library.
Booker Bear Pen Pals
Booker Bear is still hard at work in the library but misses all of his library friends. He would love to hear from Yuma County’s kids! Share a picture you’ve created, a story you’ve written, or get his help choosing your next book to read. Whatever inspires you – mail it in! Send Booker a letter by August 1st and you will receive a reply in the mail.
