Design a Library Bag Competition

Get creative and win!

We’re running a competition for you to design our next library bag.

The theme for your design is simple – “Our place”.

Create an original line drawing, 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, or download it here.

We can't wait to see your designs!
