The Prince George’s County library system hopes residents may warm up to a new Facebook contest that offers them the chance to win a Kindle Fire tablet computer during National Library Week.
Through Saturday, residents who “Like” the county memorial library system’s Facebook page will be able to complete an entry form for a chance to win the tablet, said Robin Jacobsen, outreach manager for the library system. The contest is open to residents 18 years of age or older.
“We’re really looking to increase our visibility among our electronic readers,” Jacobsen said, as well as to let people know about the library’s free download services such as video streaming, music streaming and e-book downloading. “We hope to get a lot of new Facebook followers and friends this way.”
National Library Week is observed by libraries across the country from April 13 to April 19.
