Olympics Competition

The Olympic Games are being held in Tokyo this year from Friday 23 July until Sunday 8 August 2021!

We are holding a competition at all three of our libraries to celebrate!

Guess the total number of Gold Medals that Australia will win at the end of the Olympics and you could win one of three great prizes!

There are three categories for the competition to ensure that everybody has an even chance to win over the course of the Olympics. Each category has a different prize.

How do I enter?

Fill in an entry form with your guess at Coolbellup Library, Spearwood Library, or Success Library and put it in our competition box!

Please note that entries can only be made in person at our libraries. One entry can be made per person, per day.
