Winter Reading Challenge – A Blizzard of Books!

Winter is here and all you want to do is keep warm. Do that while participating in Limestone Township Library District’s Winter Reading Challenge – A Blizzard of Books! Participate by keeping a log of how many minutes you have read, filling up your bingo card, and participating in programming events as well as take-and-make crafts at the library. 

 By doing so, you can earn tickets for the chance baskets that are on display.

 The program begins on Monday, January 9.





On Tuesday, January 3, stop in to pick up our Mitten Take-and-Make project for kids that will be available on the craft table.
