Library News

On Wednesday, January 6, we are kicking off our Snow Place Like Home winter reading program. This is a self-challenge for ages 2 to 109. Participants are invited to read and review ten books, from picture books to graphic novels, biographies, audio and eBooks, to re-reads of favorite books (whether or not they come from the library). Write a review or post a picture for ten books for a chance to win a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card. Additional prizes will be awarded on your way to ten reviews. You can participate virtually on Beanstack at https://ontario.beanstack.org or at the library with paper reviews (copies can be found at the circ desk or here). 

Winter can be a tough time. Make sure you are practicing some self-care. We are big advocates for dropping everything and picking up a good book! Check our our bulletin board in the library for some helpful ideas.
