DESIGNS by three budding artists are to be turned into new library cards.

The designs by George Brown, five, from Liversedge, Joe Bounds, 11, from Holmfirth, and Emily Stephenson, aged 14, from Highburton will appear on library cards for under fives, six to 11-year-olds, and 12 to 16-year-olds. The three competition winners were presented with prizes at a library cards launch at Huddersfield Children’s Library last Saturday October 27.

Coun Jean Calvert, Kirklees Cabinet member for well-being and communities, said: “The response to this competition was quite overwhelming and we received hundreds of entries which not only showed off artistic talent, but also how knowledgeable these young people are about the range of services their local libraries have to offer.”
