— Teen Winter Reading Program: Warm up with a Good Book will be from Jan. 2 to Feb. 28
The teen winter reading program, Warm up with a Good Book, was suggested by a member of our teen advisory board, years ago. Teens will log the titles of the books they read between Jan. 2 and Feb. 28. This is a very informal reading program, those teens who read at least 3 books during the program will receive a small prize. Each participant who completes the program will get a free book and a mug with hot chocolate packages and Hershey’s Kisses. A collective list of all the books read will be posted in the teen area of the library. Nothing is better on a cold blustery day than hot chocolate, a snuggly blanket, and a really good book.
