Saskatchewan Library Week – October 19-25, 2014

Book Spine Poetry Contest Winners Announced

Thank you all for your contributions to a very successful and well-received Saskatchewan Library Week province-wide project.  Book Spine Poetry captured many peoples imagination and we had an overwhelming response of over 1700 online and mail-in entries.  A team of jurors reviewed all the submissions and with great difficulty selected 3 winners in each category. Winners received a Chapters gift card to use for in-store or on-line purchases.

Winners and examples are displayed on the contest website at https://bookspinepoetrycontest.wordpress.com/

At the Saskatchewan Library Week Launch we were presented with a book spine poem created by Judith Krause, Poet Laureate of Saskatchewan, and Leslie Gosselin, the representative from our exclusive sponsor, SaskEnergy was taking the activity to her book club.  We also had great fun with the celebrities who created on-the-spot poems with the library collection at the Civic Museum of Regina where the event has held.

There were also many activities across the province in libraries from all sectors (public, school, academic, and special) many of which had received SLA grants but many others who  joined the fun as an opportunity to celebrate libraries in Saskatchewan.
