Library Display Competition

Library Engagement Competition

Take part in this competition – as well as the chance to win, this is a great opportunity to promote your creativity and library awesomeness and for the UK School Library community to share and inspire each other.

Join in the fun and submit photos of your library displays or other user engagement for the chance to win a £50 gift voucher for your library! With a prize draw every three months, there are four chances every year to win. Our current competition focuses on online provision and closes on 15 November 2020 – see below for all the details on how to enter.

“The quality of the displays and level of creativity exhibited by the school librarians producing them is truly inspiring. We’re very proud to support this great competition and the role of the library in school wide success.”
—Barney Jenkins, Director, Business Development and Operations, Softlink UK.

Our next competition is now running. This encompasses whatever means you are using to encourage reading during these times. Let us know and you could be in with a chance of winning a £50 voucher. So whether you’re using powerpoint, sway, teams or pinterest let us know by emailing with ‘Library Engagement Competition’ in the subject line and describing what you’re doing with a picture or two. 

Softlink will choose a winner before the next edition of The School Librarian, so there’s plenty of time to get involved.
