Winter Reads

Cozy Up / Winter Reads invites you to curl up with a stack of books to while away those long cold winter days and nights. Every January and February we challenge you to read at least 10 books.  For each book you read, give us a brief review of the book on one of our book review bookmarks and return it to the library.  Library staff will then put your review in the book you returned, and display it for other readers. You will also be entered into two prize drawings taking place in early February and early March. The more you read, the better your chances of winning.

Can't get to the library? Use our Beanstack app to log and review the books you read. Your reviews will appear on Beanstack so that other Beanstack users can read them to find their next great read, and you will also be entered into the two prize drawings!
