Birds big part of Big Read contests

NEW CASTLE — The Henry County Public Library is getting ready for the annual The Big Read with two contests. The featured book this year’s is Dashiell Hammett‘s “The Maltese Falcon” so both contests have bird-related elements.

The “Find the Falcon” contest is currently underway. Log on to and scroll down to “Where In Henry County Is The Falcon?”

Download an answer sheet and click on the “ShutterCal” link. Here participants will find the Maltese falcon in various locations around Henry County. A new photo will be posted every weekday.

Participants should complete the answer sheet with where they believe the falcon is located in the photo. Those who answer all locations correctly can pick up a chocolate falcon at the Big Read Open House on Friday, Oct. 2, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Big Read Photo contest runs from September 15 to October 15. There are two categories: “black and white” and “birds.” Ribbons will be awarded to the top three in each category. Participants may enter up to two entries per category.

Photos must be 8x10 inches and titled. Those interested in entering should attach their name, phone number, mailing address and e-mail address. The first 50 entries will receive matting compliments of New Castle-Henry County Public Library.

The Camera Club will judge the photos, and all artwork will be returned. Pick up a brochure with further details at New Castle-Henry County Public Library.  

For more information about either contest, call Debi Simmonds at (765) 529-0362, ext. 310, or send an e-mail to
