Morton Grove Public Library, IL, in Top Ten for Playaway Contest!

Leah White, a good friend of TTW, writes:

As many of you know, I recently took a position at the Morton Grove Public Library as the Readers Services Librarian. The first major project I planned was our participation in the Playaway Picture This Contest. Playaways are a relatively new style of audiobook and as a promotion, they are awarding $10,000 to the library who created the best display. I coordinated with every department in the library, borrowed some mannequins from Turin Bicycle in Evanston, IL and got to work on creating the best display we could possibly get together. Its not very often that you have a chance to win 10 grand with no strings attached! It is just money that will go directly to the library.

Now we have made it to the top 10 and the rest is up to an online vote. And I am asking for your help. It is very simple. Just go to this link:

You can view our photographs, which I’m pretty proud of, enter a valid email address, and click on “vote for this library”. There is one vote per valid email address. And please, once you have done that, please share the link on facebook, twitter, or forward this email. Post it to your blog or your website. Please pass it on. The way this can be successful is through word of mouth. And I know that I can count on you to spread the vote.

So help us (and me) out and please vote for the Morton Grove Public Library.

Thank you so much for your help.

All the best, Leah L. White

To be fair, I can’t say “Hurry, Go vote for Leah’s Library!” to you, Dear Readers, but I can say: “Please checkout all the photos and vote for your favorite.”  Please consider Leah’s work and the photos shared  for your vote.  Here’s wishing good luck to Leah and her library and to all of the Top Ten.
