Every year, the LA County Public Library puts a call out to local schools asking kids and teens to submit their original designs for bookmarks.

This year’s theme, “What’s Your Story?” wanted to capture students’ hopes and dreams for the future, and of course, encourage more reading.

Out of thousands of submissions, four were chosen from each Supervisorial district.

A BIG congratulations to this year’s Third District winners: Asia Padma-Nathan, Abigail Han, Maria Bautista, and Daria Shcherbatykh!
