Dozens of creative entries have been submitted into the Suffolk Libraries Get Caught Reading and Bookface competitions as a means to inspire readers.
Launched as part of the libraries’ Our Year of Reading campaign to get those who do not usually pick up a book into reading for pleasure through creative means.
The Get Caught Reading project challenges readers to get a snap reading in an unusual place, with Amanda Collins submitting the winning entry of her daughters Cahir and Eira reading at Haverhill pool.
The Bookface photo invites readers to take a picture holding up a book to their face – a category won by Elize Collins from Newmarket. Both won £50 of high street shopping vouchers.
Special recognition also went to Tim Theodosius who was caught reading 65ft high on a cherry picker.

A Suffolk Libraries spokesman said: “We want our reading campaign to inspire people to think about books in a different way and we’re encouraging people to make a pledge about their reading in 2016. This might be to read something new, something different or to visit the library more often.
“The photos encourage people to get creative and have some fun with books.”
