Student Book Plate Winner Leaves Literary Legacy

Groton's McCormick Library recently announced the winner of its first annual book plate contest. Sophie Park '19 created the pictured book plate. Her winning entry will be included in all library book purchases over the coming year. 
“We are delighted to have such a beautiful and interesting inaugural print in what we hope will be an annual tradition," said Library Director Mark Melchior. "Sophie integrated all the design elements we asked for, and did it with style and humor. Look closely at the clock and the weathervane, and you’ll see what I mean.” 
The contest was open to all Sixth Formers, and the judging was conducted by Mr. Melchior and art teachers Jennifer Ho and Melissa De Jesus-Akuete.
