It is a great time of year to cuddle up with some good books! Join the Winter Reading Program by tracking your minutes and filling out a square of a form for each minute read. It can be library books, books from home, even books friends loan you! Once the form is filled, it reveals a picture and you can turn it in to select a free book to keep! Pick up the form from the Children's Question Desk and return it there as well, when you are done. The program runs from now until March 21, 2014. Stop by today for the form and get reading!
