American Library Photo Challenge

"Where to read?"

We`d love to find out where you, our readers, actually read the books and other media you check out from the American Library! In a hammock? In a tree house? With your cat on the lap? Take a picture of yourself in your most beloved or unusual reading position, email the picture to the library (Photo­Con­test@a­me­ri­can-library.de) and win a gift certi­fi­cate from a local bookstore. We look forward to your creative ideas! The most unusual submis­si­ons (chosen by a jury of library volunteers and libra­rians) will be shown in a special exhibit in 2020.

Please be sure to send in your picture for the Photo Challenge by December 31st, 2019.
