Program Idea: Teen Bookface Contest
| Submitted by: Emily Fleischer, firstname.lastname@example.org
Library: Brownsburg Public Library
Audience: Teens, Children
Group Size: Any size
Season: Any time of year
Bookfacing was originally inspired from the Sleeveface blog (http://www.sleeveface.com) and developed and shared by Ann-Marie Marchant at the Provo City Library. People take a picture using a record sleeve (or in our case, a book) to augment or obscure part of their body or face and take a picture to create the illusion that the illustration and the subject are one.
This is a passive program that works great during Teen Read Week. Simply create a display of books that will work for the illusion and encourage your teens to email their pictures to library staff. Post their photos to your Facebook page and ask the community to vote. Brownsburg focused on teens in grades 6-12, but this program could easily be adapted for adults or even for children with the help of their parents.
*Either through and online site or survey, and/or conducted physically at the library.
