Oxfordshire spring reading prize draw

This spring - celebrate great reads and win fantastic prizes in our Oxfordshire Reads prize draw

Fill in a postcard with a book recommendation. It could be one you’ve read recently, or perhaps an old favourite. Then, simply post the card in the box for the chance to win one of our brilliant prizes.

All libraries will be displaying favourite books: from classics to crime, sci-fi to spies, chick-lit to chillers, feel-good fiction to fascinating factual books.

Terms and conditions

Entries must be submitted to Oxfordshire Libraries by closing time on Saturday 11 April 2020. The prize draw will take place shortly after the end of Oxfordshire Reads and the winners contacted by 7 May 2020. Valid entries must include a name and address (these will not be used for any purpose other than notifying winners of their prize). Entries by under 18 year olds must include their age. The  recommendation half of the postcard should be suitable for display in a public library, and not likely to cause offence.

You can hand in multiple postcards to increase the chance of winning, but prizes are limited to one per person. If your name is drawn twice, you will only receive a prize on the first occasion, and another name will be randomly drawn if your name comes up again. Staff from Oxfordshire Libraries are welcome to enter postcards but are not eligible to win. If their name is drawn, another will be drawn to replace it.

All prizes have been generously donated to Oxfordshire Libraries by local attractions and businesses.
