Halloween Contest Exclusively for Little Free Library Owners

Weak Creature Press loves the work of Little Free Libraries, which are small (i.e. bird-house sized) wooden structures set up in all different types of communities, from mountain to prairie to urban to rural, all of which accept and distribute donated books via the honor system.

Take a book, leave a book, promote reading! It really does not get any simpler than this, people.

Because it is Halloween, and because we like giving away books, our latest contest idea is this:

Calling all owners of a Little Free Library outpost. We want you to use social media and/or e-mail and show us photos of your location, and how you are celebrating Halloween. This may mean a photo of someone in costume utilizing your library. This could be Halloween-themed books inside. It could be spiderwebs (fake or authentic) decorating the posts and door. Whatever you’re doing, we want to see!

For this effort, we will choose three different LFLs from all entries received to win the following prize package:

one (1) set of all four titles currently available in the Weak Creature Press catalog: The Corruption of Zachary R., Ghosts in Time and Space, and Poems for Loners, all written by Douglas Richardson, and one copy of Panic Kit, by Laura A. Lionello. We highly encourage you to place these books in your library.

Neat, right? Yes!

There are a variety of ways to enter:

  • Post your picture(s) on Twitter and use @weakcreature to show it to us. Use hashtag #LFLBOO
  • Pin your pictures to Pinterest and use our Pinterest handle @weakcreature, so we can see them.
  • Send an e-mail to weakcreature@aol.com, subject line LFLBOO Pictures.
  • Post your photos to our Facebook page’s wall. www.FaceBook.com/WeakCreaturePress

We reserve the right to delete photographs that do not comply with Facebook’s posted Terms of Service, or those that contain unsuitable content.

Contest is open from October 31st, 2012, at 2:oo pm Pacific Time to November 4th, 2012, at 2:00 pm Pacific Time. We understand that you might be quite busy on actual day of Halloween, what with trick-or-treating and parties and all, so we wanted to give a little extra time to everyone who wishes to participate. Winners will be announced on Monday, November 5th, 2012, both on this website and on our Facebook page.

Information regarding Little Free Library can be found on their webpage– www.littlefreelibrary.org/ You can also find them on Facebook (check for the FB icon on their website).

Happy Halloween!
