October is a very exciting time for us over at Ireland Library … It is Theological Library Month!! We like to celebrate a little differently each year. This time around we are having a BOOK SPINE POETRY contest!! What is book spine poetry you ask?
What are the rules of our Book Spine Poetry Contest? Come on down to south campus and use the books at Ireland Library! Venture beyond the reference room and browse the worthy titles awaiting you in the stacks!
- Step one: Grab two or more books.
- Step two: Find a creative way of organizing the books to tell a story, a pun, a humorous tale or a deep thought.
- Step three: Take a picture!
- Step four: Share with us on Facebook or Twitter @USTIRLLIB. Use #IrelandLibraryBSP.
Like our Facebook Page and follow our Twitter account! We will be retweeting yours and sharing ones the staff came up with @USTIRLLIB.
Why? THERE’S A PRIZE! Every Monday of October, we will pick the best poem to win a “sweet treat.” At the end of the month, there will be a grand prize for the best one submitted by the UST community! How will we choose? YOUR VOTES! More details will be announced as we enter into the voting stage.
In the meantime, try your hand at Book Spine Poetry, and help us show off the spiffy titles we carry at Ireland library! We are looking forward to seeing what you, the UST community, create!
