It’s the 175th anniversary of public libraries in Wellington and for adults we have three competitions open until Monday 30 November which involve you using your knowledge of our library or literature.
First up we have Book In A Jar. Drop by Central Library and take a look at lines of text in the jar. What book are these lines from? Tell us the book’s title by writing the title on a slip of paper and you’ll go in the draw for a $100 Booksellers voucher. Alternatively you can check out the picture of the jar at left, and email us your entry at email@example.com . If you’re on Twitter you can DM us at @wcl_library, or message us on Facebook.
Secondly we have How Old Is Our Oldest Book. What year do you think the oldest book in our collection was published? If you pick the right year, you’ll go in the draw for a $100 Booksellers book voucher. Email us or DM/message us at the links above to enter.
Finally – if you think you know our libraries pretty well why not enter our competition : Which Wellington City Library Is That? Once you get all the questions right, you’ll go in the draw for a $100 Booksellers book voucher.
For children aged up to 13 years, we have these two competitions running until Monday 30 November.
