To celebrate it’s 20th anniversary, Riverhead Books is giving away three Little Free Libraries stocked with Riverhead titles. If you have never seen them, Little Free Libraries are small public libraries operating on a “take a book, leave a book” model. There are thousands of them around the country, but if your community doesn’t have one yet you could win one from Riverhead.

Two of the Riverhead libraries are already heading to communities, but Riverhead is accepting entries for the third. Five finalists will be picked by a panel of Riverhead authors: Junot Diaz, Dan Pink, and Emma Straub. The public will vote to choose the final winner. The libraries are designed by Art Director Helen Yentus and team.

The contest is open until July 27th. Official rules here.
