Bee with blue bookBEE a READER. Our Winter Reading Program continues through February 26!

When you sign up for our Winter Reading Program, you’ll get a reading log to keep track of all the books you read, and a yummy scratch-and-sniff bookmark. Bring your log to the library every week, and each time you will earn a different sweet-as-honey prize, just for telling us what you read. Registration starts on January 11, and reporting starts the week of January 18.  Everyone who reaches his/her reading goal will get a coupon to trade for a FREE book from the Friends Bookshop!  Last day to report your books: February 26.

We have a lot of fun in store for kids of all ages this winter!  Our January-February Program Flyer is right here. Sign up at the Children’s Desk, here on our website, or call us at 708-352-0100.
