Library Card Sign-Up Photo Contest

Library Card Sign-up Month Photo Contest

PRESS RELEASE:  In celebration of Library Card Sign-up Month, the Lawton Public Library is launching a photo contest.     

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. Librarians and library staff work throughout the year to assist parents and caregivers with educational resources and services such as free access to STEAM activities, educational apps, virtual homework help and other exciting electronic resources. Signing up for a library card is one of the most cost effective back to school supplies available and the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.                                                            

In celebration of Library Card Sign-up Month, the Lawton Public Library is launching a photo contest. The contest is open to all Lawton Public Library card holders. If you don’t have a library card, simply come to the library with proof of your current address and a picture ID and get one. Library cards are Free!


The Theme of the contest is “Unusual Reading Spots”. Take a picture of someone or yourself while reading a book in a creative way or in an unusual location. Submit your photo electronically through the Library’s Facebook messenger or by email to @email. All entries must be submitted by September 30, 2018. Photos will be displayed within the Library as well as on the Library’s website and Facebook page.


Judges will choose one first place and one second place winner. Winners will be notified by October 5, 2018. First place prize is a $50.00 gift card and the second place prize is a Photography book.
