Special Programming

 

Literary March Madness

In this program, your favorite literary characters go head-to-head and you get to decide the winner! First, you grab a bracket and fill out your winners. Once all brackets have been collected, we tally up the most selected characters to determine the Round 1 winners. From there, voting will be open each week (online or at the library) so you can vote to keep your favorites in the game! The patron with the most accurate bracket will win a Kindle Fire! Literary March Madness is open to adult patrons and patrons in grades 6-12. One winner from each age group will be selected.
 

Blind Date with a Book

In this exciting February program, we gather a diverse collection of books from our shelves and wrap them in plain brown paper. Check one out and discover an author you’ve never tried, or a book you never thought you’d read. Who knows? Maybe you’ll fall in love! Simply write a short review of the book and turn it in for a chance to win the grand prize!
 

12 Weeks of Reading

If reading for Christmas gifts sounds too good to be true, we have just the program for you! During 12 Weeks of Reading, patrons read books and complete small review sheets to be entered into weekly drawings. Each week one lucky patron will win a $25.00 store gift certificate to help buy Christmas gifts. At the end of the 12 weeks, a grand prize gift certificate of $100.00 will be awarded! Begins 12 weeks before Christmas. Open to adult (18+) and young adult (13+) patrons.

Families

 

Summer Reading Program

We have a Summer Reading program for every age group! Toddlers, kids, teens, and adults can all participate in this fun summer program in which you read to win prizes. There are weekly prizes as well as a grand prize for each age group at the end of the program. During the Summer Reading Program, we also offer free children’s entertainment each Wednesday afternoon! Our performers have included magicians, singers, wildlife experts, and many more!
