ScottishPower Foundation Library Energiser – how to enter

Calling all bookworms!

A chance for your primary school to win with Library Energiser.

To celebrate its sponsorship of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the ScottishPower Foundation is offering primary schools across Scotland the chance to win the ultimate library makeover.

Following a pilot scheme in 2014, this year Library Energiser will be open to all primary schools across Scotland. So whether your school has a library, reading room or poetry corner, this is your opportunity to turn that space into a bookworm’s haven.

Two schools will be selected to receive a £2,000 library makeover, whether that is with a lick of paint, new furniture or a stash of the latest books. The revamped library will be officially opened by a Scottish children’s author at the school’s very own mini book festival.

Two runners up will also receive a box packed full of the latest top children’s books.

Entering the Library Energiser competition is easy – simply email a photo of your school’s current library or reading space with up to 100 words on how you’d like to transform it into the perfect reading area to

Entries close on 26 June 2015. Please see full Terms & Conditions below.

ScottishPower Foundation’s Library Energiser project has helped transform outdated school libraries to create welcoming reading spaces aimed at inspiring more kids to read more often.

Our Stripe bookworms on the ScottishPower team helped launch two newly ‘energised’ school libraries. Sandaig Primary School in Glasgow and Rowanfield School in Edinburgh were each awarded £2,000 to update their reading spaces.

With transformations complete, children’s author John Fardell helped us celebrate by headlining mini book festivals at each school with readings from his bestselling tales ‘The Day Louie Got Eaten’ and ‘Manfred the Baddie’.

A great tale to tell!
