A few stylish artistic types have contributed to designs now brightening up Waipā district libraries’ membership cards and book bags.
They were among the many who responded to an April competition held by the libraries to find replacement designs for the updated batch of library cards, and designs that would suit their new book bags.
Waipā District Council’s outreach librarian Dee Atkinson said designs submitted from across the district were judged by Cambridge artist Carole Hughes. Two each were selected for the cards and the bags.
Te Awamutu’s Laura Kelly was a winner for the cards with her little caped reader, as was Cambridge 11-year-old Drew Davis, whose design featured a sprinkling of magic pouring from opening pages topped with the message ‘Books Rock’.
Valentina Di Maio, also of Cambridge, did the colourful designs for the bags – one of them with pages springing open and the other of a line-up of interestingly named books.
