Tenners Library Giveaway!

To celebrate the end of our debut year, The Tenners will be holding a special giveaway just for librarians. One public or school library will be selected to receive a set of 55 books by 2010 MG and YA debut authors.

How do you enter this massive giveaway? So easy. All you have to do is capture one of our books in the wild.* Take a photo of yourself, another librarian, a patron, or even an adorable library pet posing with one of our 2010 debut novels. Send it to us at 2010debuts@gmail.com from your institutional email address. Tell us your name, your library's name and mailing address, and who's in the picture.

Again, only librarians are eligible for this giveaway. Not a librarian? Encourage your friendly neighborhood librarian to enter! The contest will be open until February 15th and the lucky winning library will be chosen and announced on February 16th. Until then, we'll be periodically posting your pictures.

The Tenners would like to thank you all SO VERY MUCH for your support this year. It's been an amazing adventure and we're looking forward to sharing more books with you in 2011 and beyond.

Would I be correct to assume that this is only open to those in the US/Canada?

Cheers!

Nope! As long as you are a librarian, anywhere in the world, you are eligible.

I'm a student worker in my university's library, and we don't currently have a librarian who is responsible for the Youth section. Can I enter on behalf of the library, or do I need to get the overall head of the library to enter?

Thanks for the awesome contest! :)

I would tell the head librarian about the contest and get their OK to enter. Then they could email us or you can send the entry on their behalf. I can't imagine why anyone would be opposed to free books, but it's probably good to keep them in the loop. :)

Thanks!

I am the library media aide for a jr/sr high school, am I allowed to enter or does the librarian need to. I do all the photos and contest entries, thanks.

Holy Cow, this is fabulous. I'm the children's librarian at Latah County Library District in Moscow, Idaho and I would love to win this contest. Thank you!

How are you deciding which photo wins? And if I have some students who are really enthusiastic and take more than one photo, can I enter them all?

The winner will be randomly selected. It will only "count" for one entry, but you can send in multiple photos. :)

Will we receive some sort of confirmation that you received our email? My students were hoping to see their pics on your website and we hadn't yet. Thanks so much for this great contest!

At the same time I post the pictures, I reply and send the link. Based on your username I think I just posted your students' photos a few minutes ago! :)
