The Tyler Public Library has an elf on a bookshelf

TYLER, November 30, 2013--Your Tyler Public Library is introducing a contest based on the popular “Elf on the Shelf” book and toy. Each day, beginning Wednesday, Dec. 4, through Thursday, Dec.19, children younger than 12 and their families are invited to the Library to find the Elf on a book shelf.

“The Elf will be hiding somewhere different each day in our Children’s book collection, reading a great book.  We are hoping to encourage some family fun during the holiday season,” says Youth Services Librarian Linda Gray.

To participate, families pick up an entry form at the Information Desk and look for the elf.

“Children should leave the elf on the shelf to finish his book; isn’t that what every reader wants? We ask you to list where you found the elf, and what great book he was reading,” added Gray.

Families can enter once every day by returning a completed form to the Information Desk. Entry forms ask for name, Library card number and contact information. Library cards are free of charge for citizens of Tyler and available at the check-out desk. On Friday, Dec. 20, one entry will be randomly selected to win an Elf prize package, including an Elf and “Elf on the Shelf” book.

For more information about this event, or any of our programs for children, please visit the Library at 201 S. College Ave, Downtown Tyler or call us at 903-593-7323. You can also find us on the web at www.TylerLibrary.com
