Adult Winter Reading 2019

We're reading in a winter wonderland!

For every book you read between January 6 and February 2, 2019, complete an entry for a chance to win one of our four weekly prizes. Entries can be completed online at Beanstack or at the Ask Us and Circulation Desks.

You can read as many or as few books as you would like between those two dates. This program is open to adults 18 and over only.
