>Pimp My Bookcart Contest II


Need an idea for a teen program this summer? Put together a group and enter the Pimp My Bookcart contest, sponsored by Highsmith and Bill and Gene, the guys from Unshelved, the comic strip devoted to libraries. Your library could win fabulous prizes, including new bookcarts and Highsmith gift certificates. For inspiration, check out last year’s winners (one from Albany Public got an honorable mention!)
The official rules:
  • Contest is open to libraries, schools, bookstores, businesses and anyone with a bookcart that needs a little something extra.
  • Any materials can be used to pimp your cart, pre-bought or home-made accessories are acceptable, just be creative.
  • To submit, e-mail pictures of your pimped-out bookcart (front, back, and sides) to Bill & Gene (
  • By sending in your picture, you agree to let us post your entry on the site and reprint as needed.
  • Bill and Gene will pick the winning entries.
  • Deadline for entries is October 31st, 2007 so get pimping!
