Campaspe Shire library branches are inviting patrons to take part in a small competition that promotes Valentine’s Day and Library Lover’s Day.
All you have to do is borrow a book at your local library branch between now and February 14, then fill in an entry form with your name and contact details.
You’ll go into the draw to win a box of chocolates.
You can enter the competition each time you borrow a book.
Winners will be drawn on Library Lovers Day at each Campaspe library branch.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, each library branch will also be displaying romance books with easily identifiable bookmarks.
The successful Reading Hour program, part of the love2read campaign, will also be launched on February 14.
Reading Hour aims to encourage parents to share a book with their child for one hour a week or 10 minutes on most nights.
Planning will begin soon for a special Reading Hour event which will be held in August.
Campaspe Regional Library patrons have access to more than 2.5 million books, DVDs, magazines, talking books through the online catalogue at www.campaspe.vic.gov.au/library.
