• Get ready for the contest by going to the library and looking for titles that interest you.
• Write down the titles you may want, you can come back to them later. If you are looking for specific titles, use the catalog.
• Once you have your titles, stack the books, and take a picture.
• Submit your photo via the Book Spine Poetry app available on the Library’s Facebook Page between November 14th and December 31st.
