2. Create a costume that relates to the book somehow. Creativity and humor are encouraged!

3. Either photograph yourself in full costume holding up or enjoying your chosen book, or come into the library in costume to have your photo taken by Langsdale Circulation Specialist Erin Toepfner. E-mail her ( or call her (410.837.4208) to make an appointment.

4. Wait for the winner(s) to be announced at the end of October. Even if you don’t win, you’ll still be on a READ poster wearing your incredible disguise.
