Library book holiday selfie – win a free book

19 July 2016

We know that many of you take books or e-books borrowed from the library to read on holiday and we’d love to hear about where Essex Libraries books have travelled this summer!
So why not enter our competition and be in with a chance of winning a free book.
All you need to do is take a selfie of your library book (or e-book) in your holiday location and post on Twitter or Facebook, tagging @EssexLibraries. Please include the location in your tweet if it’s not already very obvious!
For each image we’ll enter you in a prize draw for one of twenty free books kindly donated by publishers. We’ll direct message winners, to arrange with you which library you want to pick up the prize

Terms and conditions

 We don’t need a person in the selfie – the focus is the book. We will retweet or share posts, but won’t guarantee to share all submissions.
Each account may submit multiple entries, provided they are of different locations or different books, and each separate entry will be entered into the prize draw.
Where children’s or Young Adult (YA) book images are submitted, if successful, they will win a children’s book at a suitable level.
The closing date is 31 August 2016.
We will contact prize winners by 19th September.
