The L.A. County Library has launched its annual bookmark contest, and I encourage all students (including middle- and high-school students) to enter. The PDF of the entry form is right below this post. Completed entries can be turned in online, by mail, or during a branch’s sidewalk service hours (see entry form for details). Whatever your student loves about books and reading, the bookmark contest is a way to express that enthusiasm creatively!
Our local Manhattan Beach public library branch is doing a great job of checking out physical books through sidewalk service. E-books and audiobooks are also easily downloaded, and anyone can get a digital card right away by submitting the online application.
The public library has adjusted its hours of service:
The Manhattan Beach Library has extended its Sidewalk Service and added Tuesday evenings until 7:00 PM. Sidewalk Service hours are Monday, Wednesday to Friday, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Phone Service: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM), Tuesdays from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM (Phone Service: 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM).
