Want to win a Kindle Fire or an iPod Nano?
It's easy. All you need to do is sign up for a library card in the Huntley Library District.
The contest is open to anyone who holds a library card from the district. The deadline to register is Feb. 29.
The drawing also serves to promote the library's growing eBook collection and Freegal, its new downloadable music service collection.
People who live within the district, but don't belong to the library, need to bring proof of residency and sign up for a free card.
To enter for your chance to win, show your library card at the checkout desk and ask for a drawing ticket. You can only enter once and your library account needs to be in good standing.
One winner will be drawn on Valentine's Day for an iPod Nano. The next drawing will be for a Kindle Fire on March 1 -- the prizes come courtesy of the library's friends foundation.
For more information about the contest or the library's eBooks collection, visit huntleylibrary.org.
