Design a Library Card Competition

Get creative and win!

We’re running a competition for our customers to design our next library card.

The theme for your design is simple – “Hamilton!”.

Create an original drawing, come up with a photograph, or develop a piece of digital artwork.

All age groups are welcome and there are Centre Place vouchers and an iPad mini up for grabs.

Start thinking, start planning... then pick up an official entry form from Monday at your local Hamilton City Library.

We can't wait to see your designs!
