If you could recommend a book to Stone Cold Steve Austin, what would it be? Do you think he would enjoy The Perks of Being a Wallflower? Catcher in the Rye? Or maybe he's actually a big softy and would love a sweet Sarah Dessen romance! ...or maybe not?
This Fall, 9 branches are asking you to convince your favourite wrestler to read a book of your choosing: Central, Country Hills, Forest Lawn, Fish Creek, Nose Hill, Saddletowne, Shawnessy, Southwood, and Thornhill.
If you're particularly persuasive, you could win a TRIP TO WRESTLEMANIA! That's right - next April you could be off to East Rutherford, New Jersey to see WRESTLEMANIA (A trip valued at $5000). And if you're not the lucky grand prize winner, there are still lots of other chances to win WWE swag. Sounds awesome, doesn't it?
Here's how to participate: Write an amazing, persuasive letter that will convince your favourite wrestler to read a book of your choosing and deliver it to a participating branch. Next, you need to commit to reading 5 books between October and April--you can do this at your branch. Then all you gotta do is sit back, read and wait to hear who the lucky winners are (probably you *wink wink*).
While you are waiting, you could come to the Library and MEET LANCE STORM LIVE!!!! That's right, Lance Storm is visiting The Calgary Public Library to tell us how awesome reading is and maybe flex his muscles a bit. You can see him live, for free at the Forest Lawn Library on October 16th and at the Saddletowne Library on October 25th, 4pm.
Contest submissions are due Nov 5. If you win, don't forget to send us a postcard from WRESTLEMANIA!
