Mission: Non-Fiction

To all JK to grade 8 students, your mission for this edition of Greater Sudbury Public Library's Design-a-Bookmark Contest will turn you into a detective, explorer, or even a scientist.

Your Mission: You must read any three (3) books from the kids' non-fiction section of your local library. Then, design your bookmark based on your favourite book of the three you read.

Note: A non-fiction book contains facts and information about real people and places, and can be fun or silly, as well as serious. They are organized by using numbers, called "call number". Ex. Chris Hadfield by Chelsea Donaldson, call # 629.450092 HAD-D.
