Hot Reads for Cold Nights

Need a cure for those cold, winter blues? The North Branch Library invites all adults, 18 and older, to participate in their third annual Hot Reads for Cold Nights winter reading program. The program runs from January 9 to March 3. To participate, stop in the library beginning Jan. 9 and pick up a pack of Hot Reads for Cold Nights bookmarks.

Each bookmark will have a different subject listed on it. Read any book that fulfills that subject and turn your bookmark(s) in to the library each week for a chance to win a prize.

Prize drawings will be held each Monday from bookmarks turned in from the previous week, plus there will be a grand prize drawing for a Hot Reads for Cold Nights sweatshirt from all of the bookmarks turned in over the 8-week period.
