1,000 Books to Read Before You Die Battle of the Books!

Join us for an event for book lovers on Friday July 19th at 7:00pm. The 1,000 Books Battle of the Books is for five passionate readers each to make a case, in front of a live audience, for a book they think should be on everyone’s "To Be Read" list. At the end of the “battle,” the audience votes for the book they most want to read or reread, a winner and runner-up are declared, and copies of 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die and all five books on the program are offered for sale.

Wine and cheese will be served and registration is strongly suggested, due to space. This is event is free and open to all. Don't miss this fun evening!

1,000 Books to Read Before You Die - Battle of the Books!


Bookmark Contest -now through May 31st

Every year during the month of May we have a summer bookmark contest. Kids and adults design a bookmark of a book they love. We have guest judges choose a winner and runner-up in each of five categories/age groups - then we print 100 each of the winning bookmarks.

The five winners get a $25 gift certificate to Byrd's Books and 25 of their bookmark to give away. We keep the rest. Honorable mentions get a $10 gift certificate.

We use our copies of the bookmarks to give out all summer long!

We are going to start the contest now and go through the month of May, so you have plenty of time. There is one submission per person, and teachers may use them with students, we just need the completed entries by May 31st. Instructions for submitting them are on the entry form. We cannot wait to see your favorite books in art!
