In October last year, our library service launched a contest to design a new library card for children.

We knew the competition would be popular – but we didn’t know just how popular it was going to be!

All in all, we had more than 450 entries – all of which are now brightening up the foyer at Wrexham Library.

The winners of the competition were Daisy Moore and Felicity Woods, who were presented with their gift vouchers and new library cards in a presentation ceremony at Wrexham Library.

The two winning designs have already been made into library cards and will replace the current children’s library card design.

There’s never a bad time to get a library card- so come along to Wrexham Library and pick up one of the redesigned cards.

All children (aged under 12) need to apply for a library card is the permission of a parent, and some form of ID or proof of address.

And while there, why not take a look at all the submitted entries in the foyer, sent in by hundreds of children and adults from all across Wrexham?

Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, said: “I’d like to congratulate Daisy and Felicity for their winning entries to the library card design contest, and I’m sure their bright and colourful designs will be welcomed by our younger library users.”
