Sneaks Valentines on Sale

January 24, 2017

Do you love Baltimore County Public Library? Want to tell us how much you love BCPL and get a chance to win two tickets to Taste of the Town at the same time? From February 1 through February 19, you can purchase Sneaks-themed valentines at any of our BCPL branches (except for Randallstown Branch, closed for renovation) or mobile libraries.

There are seven different designs, but each valentine includes the phrase “I love BCPL!” and a section for you to tell us why you love BCPL. The valentines are $1 each (cash only). The valentines also include a contest section that you must fill out in order to be eligible to win two (2) tickets to the Foundation’s annual spring fundraiser Taste of the Town in April ($150 value). A winner will be randomly chosen on March 10. Entries must have full and correct contact information in order to win.

After you tell us why you love BCPL, the valentines are posted publicly in the branch so we can share the love.

All proceeds from sales benefit the Foundation for BCPL. Read on for contest entry rules.
