February is for lovers…library lovers, that is! This month Will Rogers Library patrons are loving the 2020 Adult Winter Reading Program. If you haven’t yet signed up to play the Book Bingo themed program, the game runs through the end of February. There’s still plenty of time to read and win a variety of fun prizes, from book bags and themed gift baskets (on display at the library now) to a new Kindle Fire tablet! To play, stop by the library, sign up and receive your entry card and instructions. The more you read, the more chances you’ll have to win!
There’s even more to love at the Library this month with over 500 new titles added for February. If you’re ecstatic for e-books, you can check out 111 new titles! Are you still passionate for print? Over 250 new titles are waiting just for you. If you prefer your books to whisper softly in your ear, consider over 100 new digital and hard copy audio books just added to the collection. Whatever you love at your library, you’ll find it at the Will Rogers Library in February!
