WHO WANTS TO TIME TRAVEL THIS SUMMER?

Since this year’s Summer Reading Club is science-related, the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library’s marketing campaign is based on the science of time travel, thanks to sponsor Salin Bank and inspiration from Doctor Who. All prizes are Doctor Who-related, by the way, you Whovians.

 

TIME FOR LIBRARY FUN CONTEST

With our TIME FOR LIBRARY FUN contest, there will be a “Time and Relative Dimensions in Space,” aka TARDIS, at KHCPL Main (220 N. Union St.) and KHCPL South (1755 E. Center Rd.). Each is different on the inside. In addition, there will be a TARDIS tent shared between the Adventure II and Discovery II bookmobiles, and at KHCPL Russiaville, there will be a TARDIS door front.

 

People are invited and encouraged to stand inside or outside a TARDIS and take a creative selfie. Then post the selfie on KHCPL’s Facebook page along with the following information:

 

•To what date (choose a specific day such as Sept. 17, 1787, or just a timeframe such as 3,000 B.C.) are you using the TARDIS to travel back or forward in time?

•Why did you choose the date?

•Who would you like to meet there?

•What would you like to do while there?

 

For example, perhaps you have a quilt made in 1870 by your great-great-grandmother, so you want to travel back in time to get to know her and learn about quilting as your great-great-grandmother sews. In that case, dress in 1870 attire or bring the quilt or a photo of your great-great-grandmother to hold up in the selfie with our TARDIS. 

 

Maybe you would have loved to have been on Apollo 11 for the historic trip and joined astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as they walked on the moon on July 20, 1969. Don a homemade astronaut helmet or moonwalking shoes and snap a selfie inside our TARDIS.

 

Maybe you want to be aboard the Star Trek Enterprise on December 29, 1967, when the Tribble episode aired. Dress up like Capt. Kirk or Spock or create a Tribble to include in the selfie.

 

Get the picture? (Pun intended.)

 

You can enter more than once. Just change the destination date and location and reason for traveling through time. In fact, we’d love it if you’d take a selfie with each of the four TARDISes.

 

Participants need not be card-holding patrons of KHCPL or from Kokomo/Howard County, Indiana. 

 

There will be a weekly prize based on a random drawing of all photos taken and posted to the KHCPL Facebook page. Here are the entry deadlines for all eight weeks.

•Week 1 — 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 9, through 5:59 p.m. on June 16. 

•Week 2 — 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 16, through 5:59 p.m. on June 23. 

•Week 3 — 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 23, through 5:59 p.m. on June 30. 

•Week 4 — 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 30, through 5:59 p.m. on July 7. 

•Week 5 — 6:00 p.m. on Monday, July 7, through 5:59 p.m. on July 14.

•Week 7 — 6:00 p.m. on Monday, July 21, through 5:59 p.m. on July 26. 

 

Each weekly winner will be contacted via instant message on Facebook, and arrangements will then be made for the winner to pick up the prize. When the prize is awarded, a photo of the winner and the prize will be taken and posted on the KHCPL Facebook page.

 

The names of all of those who submit selfies will be entered into a grand prize drawing to take place at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, July 28. The grand prize winner will be contacted via instant message on Facebook, and arrangements will then be made for the winner to pick up the prize. When the grand prize is awarded, a photo of the winner and the prize will be taken and posted on the KHCPL Facebook page.
