On March 28, Thorpe first grader Emma Gomes will visit the State House in Boston to receive her honorable mention award for the annual library bookmark contest. The Massachusetts School Library Association sponsors the contest each year to raise awareness of school library programs. Children's book authors and illustrators select the winners. Danvers students created some wonderful designs this year, and Emma's design was chosen in the Division I category to receive honorable mention. Congratulations, Emma!
