For celebration of Picture Book month the Public Library for Union County is hosting an event called the Picture BOOKFACE photo contest starting November 1 through November 16.

To participate, select a picture book cover and replace it with your face. Then snap a picture and email it to by November 16. The book must be a picture book. Or print out a copy and bring it to the staff at the circulation desk. Include your name, address, phone number, email, and age/grade in your email or on the print copy. One entry per person per age group and your picture must be submitted by November 16.

Vote on the Public Library for Union County’s Facebook page by liking your favorite entry or by voting for the favorite picture on display at the library. November 25 is the deadline for voting. There is a limit of one like per day.

A prize will be awarded for the picture with the most votes in the following age groups: age 0-2; age 3-5; age 6-9; 10-13; 14-18; and adult. Winners will be announced on November 27. Each winner receives an age appropriate book.
