Smile! It’s National Library Week

Library Week 2021 Celebration Graphic

In honor of National Library Week, April 4-10, the Detroit Mercy Libraries invites current students, faculty, staff and alumni to share their love of libraries and reading. Straighten up those bookshelves, strike a pose and smile to enter the Shelfie Selfie Contest and try to win a Detroit Mercy/Barnes & Noble Bookstore gift card! Here’s how it works:

  1. Take a selfie in front of, or next to, your bookshelf or a shelf of books that represents what you like to read.
  2. Follow @detroitmercylibraries on Instagram.
  3. Post your photo to your Instagram and tag it with the #detroitmercylibraries (include your name in the caption). This will serve as your “entry” for the drawing.
  4. Winners will be announced the week of April 12.
