Lane Anderson Award Library Display Contest

Thank you for your participation in this library display!


Any public library in Canada is eligible to compete in the contest.  The rules are very simple – make a display showcasing the 2019-2020 Lane Anderson Award Shortlist. The goal is to spread awareness of great Canadian science books that are accessible to people with non-science backgrounds.

To enter into the contest, simply take a picture of your library’s display(s) and send it via twitter with the library name and the handle #LAAdisplay to @thelaneanderson
Alternatively libraries without Twitter may submit photos of their display to


Displays will be judged by three criteria: creativity, readability, and overall appeal of the display in the library. The winner will receive a set of this year’s shortlist!
