Love your local library? Spend a lot of time on Facebook? Fond of taking and posting photos of yourself? Now you can combine all three of the above for a chance to win a great prize! Just snap a photo of yourself using something you’ve checked out from the Windsor Public Library and post it to our Facebook page with the hashtag #usingWPL any time from May 1-14 for a chance to win! We don’t care what the item is – a book, video game, DVD, ebook, magazine, etc. Whether a physical object or a digital product, as long as you got it from us that’s all that matters! For each picture you post, we’ll fill out a ballot for you in our draw with a maximum of 5 ballots per person. The winner will be drawn at random from all ballots and announced on May 21. The winner will receive their choice of a $75 gift certificate from one of the following: Biblioasis Books, Dr. Disc, Chapters, iTunes or Best Buy. We’ve posted a few of our own photos here to get you started! Remember, only photos posted to our site between May 1-14 will be eligible. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #usingWPL. Have fun and please share with all your friends!

Contest Details:

· Contest will run from May 1-14, 2014.
· All eligible entries will have their name on a ballot and entered in our draw. A winner will be randomly selected and announced on May 21, 2014. There is a limit of 5 ballots per person.
· Although members of WPL staff are more than welcome (and in fact encouraged!) to post photos, they are not eligible for the draw.
· The photo must show the entrant using any item (physical or digital) checked out from WPL. It is not necessary that you show a WPL label or barcode on the item…we’re running this on the honour system.
· Although it is not necessary for you to tell us exact item you’re using, we would love to hear what you’ve checked out so feel free to share.
· To be eligible, the photo must be posted on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/windsorpl) along with the hashtag #usingWPL.
· We know some of you out there are a bit shy so it is not necessary that you show your face. However, if you do that’ll make us really happy:)
· Since we’re not asking that you include your name or contact information, the winner will be notified through the Facebook account used to post the photo.
· The winner will receive a $75 gift card from their choice of one of the following: Biblioasis Books, Dr. Disc, Chapters, iTunes or Best Buy.
