OCPL holding Bookmark Contest for Sesquicentennial

The Oconee County Public Library (OCPL) is holding a bookmark contest to celebrate the county’s 150th birthday. 2018 marks the sesquicentennial anniversary of Oconee County and everyone is invited to mark this occasion by participating in the contest, explains OCPL Director Blair Hinson. “You can pick up the template at any of the branches. We’ve got information about it online, but the templates are at the branches and all the contest rules and that kind of stuff. We are doing it by age groups. This is celebrating Oconee County and this is your chance, basically, for your artwork to be on the bookmarks that we hand out to everybody for the next year or two, until we do it again.” The contest is open to all Oconee County residents. The theme is “Images of Oconee.” All entries must be turned in to any OCPL branch or participating school libraries by Friday, Feb. 2.
