Win a copy of HOMEGROWN TEA!

Friends, did you know that January is National Hot Tea Month? To celebrate, we're giving away a free early copy of HOMEGROWN TEA: An Illustrated Guide to Planting, Harvesting, and Blending Teas and Tisanes by Cassie Liversidge. 

For those of you with a green thumb, this beautifully illustrated book shows how to grow rose hips, mint, sage, hibiscus, and lavender–all of the ingredients for your perfect cuppa.  

To enter the giveaway, simply email from your professional/library-issued e-mail address (subject: Homegrown Tea) by Friday, January 31, with your favorite tea. Make sure to include your library's mailing address to be placed in the random drawing. Read on for the fine print. Good luck!

Update 2/3: This sweepstakes is now closed. Congratulations to Joanna Goldfarb, Youth Services Librarian at Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library in Monticello, NY!
