Big Sky Libraries to celebrate Library Lovers' Day with local quiz

Share your love for the library this month for a chance to win

Moree Plains Shire community members are invited to reignite their passion for literature and reconnect with the library this month, as part of Library Lovers' Day 2020.

Library Lovers' Day, run by the Australian Library and Information Association, is celebrated by libraries across the country on February 14 and is an opportunity for people to show their love for libraries.

This year's theme is 'Uncover something new' and Big Sky Libraries is celebrating with a Library Lovers' quiz.

Big Sky Libraries manager Sally Walters encourages library and literature lovers of all ages to pop into the Mungindi or Moree Community Library during the month of February to enter the Library Lovers' quiz for a chance to win a $30 Love Local Gift Card.

"The quiz will really test our members' love for all things library related, with each quiz including questions about authors, characters, book titles and the Big Sky Library borrowing system and even staff!" she said.

"Entrants must answer at least seven of the 14 questions correctly to be in the draw to win a $30 Love Local Gift Card.

"Entrants must be a member of the library. Any community members who join the library whilst the quiz is open will be entitled to two entries to the quiz, so there really is no better time to become a member of Big Sky Libraries."

Entries for both the adult's and kid's version of the quiz are open until Friday, February 21, with hard copy forms available at each Big Sky Library branch in the shire.

In addition to the Library Lovers' quiz the Moree Community Library will also have a new display encouraging members to 'uncover something new' and find love with a new hobby.

The books on display will be non-fiction, offering readers an opportunity to learn something from the categories of history, nature, wild life and many more.
