The weather outside is cold and dreary, so grab a book and a blanket and participate in our Winter Reading Challenge this year! The more you read, the better your chances to win the grand prize! We will have a teen grand prize winner and an adult grand prize winner.
This year, the Winter Reading Program will take place January 17 at 9:00am and ends February 28 at 11:59pm, and will be on Beanstack. The program is open to anyone in 5th grade - adults. If you need help setting up your Beanstack account, please call the library at (712) 722-2138. Happy reading!
