Event Details

Attention book-lovers of ALL ages! Did you score some new books over the holidays? Looking for a stack of new reads to check out from the library? Either way, winter is a perfect time to cozy up by a fireplace and lose yourself in a book with our January Reading Challenge.

Participating is simple: log each book you finish between January 1-31. Each book you log (up to a maximum of 10 books) earns you a raffle ticket to enter into our ticket drawings for a variety of fun gift baskets. There are baskets for all ages, so get the whole family involved! Prizewinners will be drawn and notified the afternoon of Monday, February 1st, so make sure you get your raffle tickets entered by noon that day.

You can participate through our Beanstack site at  If you prefer to participate using a paper reading log, you may download one here or request one by calling 343-6118.
