Step 5

Share your picture, in one or more of these ways:

  • Post it in the library’s Facebook event
  • Post it on your Facebook profile tagging the library
  • Post it on Instagram with the hashtag #ORL@home
  • E-mail it to sthoreson@orl.bc.ca and tell her if you want it shared with your name, anonymously or kept private.

Challenge your friends to try it!



  • Choose short titles
  • Choose books where the title is displayed prominently on the spine (sometimes the author’s name is the focus)
