If you’re off to a good start but aren’t quite finished yet, keep up the good work! Participants must be 16 or older, finish reading 12 books (or audio books/e-books) and return their completed punch card by March 31 to choose a prize. All participants are entered into the grand prize drawing on April 1.

Find something new: There are new shelves by the front desk just for new adult books, new DVDs and new audiobooks. New children’s books are in the divided bin in the Children’s Room. New materials are added each week.

Book Club: All are welcome to join book club discussions. Contact the library to participate in the Zoom call. The next book club meets at 7 p.m. March 29 to discuss “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles.
