It’s time for the Adult Winter Reading Program!
What does that mean for you? COME BY TODAY to pick up a library bingo sheet. As you complete the challenges in each of the boxes, make bingos to earn awesome prizes from local stores and restaurants. Anyone who blacks out their bingo sheet gets entered into a drawing for one of two Barnes & Noble gift cards! Winter is a great time to curl up with a good book. Why not earn fab prizes while you do it? Completed bingo sheets must be submitted by Fri., March 31, 2017.
The reading program is not just about prizes. Reading create new synapses in the brain, which puts you on the path to better health. Other benefits include stress reduction, vocabulary extension, increased empathy and memory improvement. Now you know why the theme for this year’s Adult Reading Program is This is Your Brain on Books! Also, there are several FREE EVENTS during the next few months you won’t want to miss, including an Indoor Stargazing Party on Fri., March 31, 2017 at 7 p.m. at the library. See our Calendar for more info.
