Who are these people?

The theme for this year is 'Library Love Stories' and we have a competition that will leave you scratching your head....  When you walk along the outside of the Bassendean Memorial Library building you’ll see lots of faces in the windows… Some you may instantly recognize as famous authors. Others may leave you scratching your head.

 Winners will receive special prizes!

Competition closes 31 March 2019.
Winners notified early April 2019.

Library Lovers’ Day, 14 February 2019, is an opportunity for libraries and library users to celebrate all the ways that love can be found in the library. Organised by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), this annual event involves hundreds of libraries and thousands of library users.

This year, ALIA is running a 200-word flash fiction story competition. The story can be about anything it just has to start with the writing prompt 'there was love to be found in the library'. The prize is a $100 book voucher. 

Submissions should be sent through in a word or basic text document in a standard font and size and are open to everyone. Submissions are due by 5:00pm AEDT on 21 February 2019.

Please email entries to or post to 9-11 Napier Close Deakin 2600.

Winners will be chosen at the sole discretion of ALIA and will be notified in early May.

By entering the competition, you agree to give ALIA the right to publish the work in its entirety for promotional purposes online and in print. Copyright of the work remains with the author. For full terms and conditions please see the website.
