The Stanislaus County Library will again offer the Anime Day bookmark contest in anticipation of the annual Anime Day event on Oct. 19.

Young artists ages 10 to 18 are invited to submit an original, anime-themed bookmark for a chance to be featured on this year’s Anime Day bookmark.

“This is our 4th annual bookmark contest and the number of submissions has increased every year, which is exciting because it means more tweens and teens are getting the opportunity to let their artistic abilities shine,” said Brian Lillie, library assistant in the Children’s and Teen Services Department. 

Anime Day will be held from noon to 4 p.m. in the Community Room of the Nick. W. Blom Salida Regional Library. The event will feature food, crafts, activities, and more. Cosplay is welcome, but not required. Anime Day is sponsored by the Stanislaus Library Foundation.
