What better way to get to Sesame Street than with a set of free tickets?

If you want to see Sesame Street Live when it comes to Fresno June 14, we have some good news for you. Thanks to a generous donation from Savemart Center, we’ve got three family 4-packs of Sesame Street Live tickets (6:30 pm performance) to give away to our social media followers.

Any adult FCPL cardholder can enter the ticket drawing, but to be eligible to win you must participate in our Alphabet Challenge:
  1. Take or create a picture of your favorite letter of the alphabet.
  2. Briefly explain why it is your favorite letter: What do you like so much about it? Why do you prefer it to the other 25 letters?
  3. Share your picture and explanation with us on social media—Twitter (@fcpl), Instagram (@fresnolibrary), and/or Facebook (@fresnolibrary), using the hashtag #FCPLSesameStreet
When you successfully complete these steps, you’ll be entered into a random drawing for the tickets! Three winners will be selected, one from each social media following, and winners will be notified via social media message.
For your submission(s) to be eligible, you must:
  • Meet the stated requirements for the “challenge.”
  • Set your photo to "Public" for the duration of the contest.

Upon submitting a post that meets the guidelines established above, eligible followers will be entered in the drawing. The contest is open to all residents of Fresno County, with a Fresno County Public Library card/account, except Fresno County Public Library employees and their families. All contest entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM on 5/26. This contest is in no way sponsored or administered by any social media site. By entering, contest participants confirm they release Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter of responsibility for contest outcomes, and agree to the terms of service of these social media sites. Also, please note that entries containing vulgar or questionable content will be disqualified.

Winners will be selected by random draw from among all eligible entries received, and notified on social media by 5:00 PM on 5/30. Odds of winning depend on the number of qualified entries received, but no entrant may win more than one prize. Prizes must be accepted as awarded. No cash alternatives, substitution, or transfers of prizes will be permitted. Winners must collect their prize at a Fresno County Public Library branch, and each winner will be contacted to determine which branch the prize is to be sent to for pickup.
