Menlo Park Library launches 'bookface' contest

 

Between now and the end of August, the Menlo Park Library is inviting visitors to participate in a photo contest, for the chance to win a $100 Kepler's gift card. The challenge? To snap a clever "bookface," or a portrait that integrates a book cover image as part of the photo.

After the picture is taken, contenders must post it to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, tagged with @MenloParkLibrary and the hashtag #bookface to be eligible.

The contest will run until 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 31, and people can enter more than one photo. The winner will be chosen in a drawing Sept. 8 and will be contacted via social media.

"We wanted to throw this out as a way to bring attention to the library," said Nick Szegda, assistant library director. It can be challenging for libraries to get attention on social media, he said. The contest is one of a number of activities planned to celebrate the library's centennial this year, he said.

For more examples of ‟bookfaces" submitted for the contest, search for the Twitter, Instagram and Facebook handle of the Menlo Park Library: @MenloParkLibrary.
