In celebration of the forthcoming launch of the new Literati Public, a Credo Reference (www.credoreference.com) solution tailored to fit the needs of Public Libraries and facilitate the telling of their story, the company announced that their latest contest is now open and called "Amazing Stories, LIANZA Edition."

The contest is aimed at eliciting the amazing and true (or mostly true) stories that have happened at libraries across New Zealand. The best stories will be selected as finalists and the winner of first prize will receive two iPads for their library, and of course a small prize for the librarian, too.

The contest will culminate with the announcement of the winners at the 2012 LIANZA Conference in Wellington, New Zealand, 23-26 September. Entries will be accepted at Credo Reference stand 42 until 1.00 Tuesday 25 September. Entries can also be sent by email to amazingstories@credoreference.com.
