2019 I Read! I Vote! Bookmark Contest Winners Announced

Congratulations to the 2019 I Read! I Vote! bookmark contest winners! We have more than 300 entries this year and winners were selected by a star panel including Mayor Melvin Carter, Superintendent of Saint Paul Public Schools Joe Gothard, and Library Director Catherine Penkert. Winning bookmarks will be available for free at all Saint Paul Public Library locations soon.

I Read! I Vote! is the library’s program promoting and celebrating the Minnesota Youth Reading Award nominees.  Each year, we partner with Saint Paul Public Schools to introduce the nominated books to more than 120 classrooms at 30 schools. We also provide our partner schools with a set of the books for their school libraries.
