Brrr…it’s cold out there! Looks like Winter…Reading is upon us! This year’s Winter Reading is January 12th-February 25th, and is open to all ages: Children from Newborn-Grade 6, Teens in Grades 7-12, and Adults Ages 18 & Up. Children register in the Children’s Department, and Adults and Teens register at the Main Circulation Desk. Oh, and did we mention prizes? Children have a chance to win one of two gift baskets filled with goodies, Teens have a chance to win an Instax 9 Mini Camera, and Adults have a chance to win a Keurig beverage machine.
Adults and Teens: every book you read and library program you attend during Winter Reading counts as an entry for the prize–all you have to do is fill out a review slip with the book or library program title and a few sentences about what you liked or didn’t like about it. Simple as that! The more books you read and programs you attend, the more chances you’ll have to win!
Bonus: Winter Reading Roundtables for Adults (just come and talk about whatever you’re reading, and enjoy light refreshments) at 6pm on January 9th and February 6th count as triple entries. Also, don’t miss the all-ages program “Black History of Henry County” at 6pm on February 27th–one lucky attendee wins a door prize!
