Up for a challenge? Beat the winter blues with some great books! Read eight (8) books* by March 31, 2021, and you’ll be entered to win a prize drawing!

Stop by the library to pick up your reading log OR call/email the library to request a reading log, and we will leave it on the cart outside for curbside pickup. Begin reading, and list the books you’ve read or listened to on the Reading Log bookmark.

Read eight to ten books by March 31, and turn in your Reading Log bookmark by April 10 to be entered in a prize drawing.

*Read to kiddos at home? No problem! 10 picture books count as 1 book; 3 kids’ chapter books count as 1 book; and books over 500 pages count as 2 books!
