When winter winds howl, warm up with a good book! Join the Kids’ Winter Reading Program: Building for the Future!
Grab your hard hat and work boots, and come down to the Library where programs, prizes, and more await. Kids (newborns through grade eight) can join the Winter Reading Program. When they sign up in the Kids’ Library, they’ll receive a bookmark, a booklog to record the books read, and a reading challenge.
Kids who reach reading goals (determined by the reader’s age) by February 28 receive a sticker; a raffle ticket; coupons for free pizza from Pizza Palace, hot chocolate from Brewpoint Coffee, bowling at Pinstripes, and admission to LEGOland; and their name displayed on our “Blueprint” bulletin board!
