Adult Reading Program
The Adult Reading Program ends on Tuesday, March 31. All winter long we have been enjoying lots of great books and entering the weekly drawing. There have been 10 winners so far.
A total of 63 participants have participated in the adult reading program. All drawing entries have been saved for a final, grand prize drawing on Wednesday, April 1. Winners of that drawing will be announced soon. No matter what season of the year, it is always a great time to get lost in a book.
After School is Cool
