30 Second Book Talk Contest

Do you love to read?
Love to recommend books to a friend?
Love to selfie?

Send us a book talk!

Send in a 30 second (or less) video book talk to the library promoting a book you loved! Book talks can be as simple as using the video function on your phone, saving it and sending it to us to use to promote books on our blog! Every book talk you enter gives you an entry into our book talk contest. The contest runs from June 15-July 28th. 
Winners will be announced on July 29th 

Prizes include gift certificates to iTunes or Google Play Stores!


Rules for Book Talks:
1. Book talks must be 15-30 seconds long.
2. Upload your video to YouTube and send us the link, or you can send us the video directly to: nadoteenlibrary@gmail.com. Videos must be a .mov file if emailed.
3. By participating in this contest you are allowing the Coronado Public Library to use your video for the purposes of education, communication and promotion of the library.

Book Talk Tips:
*Promote a book you read and liked!
*Write down what you want to say in advance, but don't just read off a script, have fun with it!
*Make sure to say the book title and the author's name
*Talk about why you liked the book or do a teaser about the plot- but don't give everything away!
*Book talks can be simple, as easy as talking to your phone's video function, or as fancy as you'd like! You could use graphics or a powerpoint to make a book talk as well!
