This week (April 14-20, 2013) is National Library Week! It’s a celebration of all things “library,” and in honor of this week, we have some special programs and events planned for you.
We’re hosting an online photo contest called “Picture It! Show Us Why You Love Your Library.” We already accepted submissions in March, and now you can vote on your favorite of the top ten submissions! We’re looking for the photo that best shows us why you love your Library. The top 3 winners will receive the following prizes generously funded by The Friends of the Sunnyvale Library:
1st place – NOOK HD
2nd place – NOOK Simple Touch
3rd place – $25 to Leigh’s Favorite Books
Here’s the complete schedule of events, including a Celebrity Storytime, Meet a Librarian, Digital Photo Booth (with props) and more! Please let us know if you have any questions about any of our events.
