By: Rhonda Mihalic | March 15, 2019 |

In honor of School Library Month in April, Junior Library Guild hosted the “Treat for Your Feet” sock giveaway—offering 50 lucky winners a chance to score a pair of our exclusive “reading is dreaming with your eyes open” socks.

More than 700 educators entered our drawing, which ran for the entire month of April. We received entries from across the United States, from public and private schools, city libraries, parochial schools and community organizations.

“We thought this was a fun way to celebrate School Library Month and pay tribute to the educators across the country who are so committed to fueling literacy and a love of reading for the next generation,” said Steve Zales, CEO of MSI Information Services, JLG’s parent company.

Contest winners hail from Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

Winners will be notified by email and receive their socks in the mail at the address provided.
