In honor of National Library Week, I am giving away some goodies!
Four of you fine folks will win one of these library-themed items: a Library Notebook and mini-poster from Unshelved and a new copy of The Librarian’s Book of Lists by George M. Eberhart.
Entering is super easy—just follow this link to Rafflecopter to enter for a chance to win! You can get entries for reblogging this post, following heyboobooks on tumblr, or simply by telling me what you love about libraries. Just make sure you include your email address so I can contact you if you win! Entries will be accepted until midnight on Sunday, April 20th, and winners will be notified the next day.
How adorable are the shirts and totes in Out of Print's new library collection? They are limited editions made in honor of National Library Week (yay us!) and I probably need them in my life.
Happy National Library Workers Day! My library is celebrating with a pizza party, so life is pretty good here in Maryland.
