“Reading Wonderland” Celebration at Library

What better way to enjoy the cold of winter than to read away the hours! Taking part in the Greenville Public Library’s Winter Reading Program can help with that. Starting January 23rd through February 27th check out any book, audiobook, ebook, or magaizine and receive an entry form for each. Enter it to win weekly prizes and a chance at one of the grand prizes. For adults 18 and over.

As always the prizes are excellent: an HP 5660 wireless printer which allows you to print from your smartphone or Tablet; a Kindle Fire HD6, and a beautiful Bear’s Mill Gift Basket.

This year the program starts with a celebration on Saturday the 23rd from 1:00 to 3:00 with live music provided by Matt Haupt & Cylas Conway and a Hot Chocolate Bar and treats. The prizes are on display and hundreds of books to choose from! Stop in and warm up in the festive atmosphere and get reading.

The Children and Teens Departments are also hosting programs with prizes! Kids 11 and under can complete squares on a Bingo card and win a prize for each “Bingo.” Those who complete every square on their card will receive a fun, winter-themed prize. A craft station will be set up on the 23rd and there will be a drawing for a door prize.

Another “no-school” movie matinee will show on Monday February 1st at 2:00 with refreshments in the upstairs meeting room. This time it’s the classic The Black Stallion and two lucky kids will win a copy of the book that inspired the movie. Storytimes and Bookbabies continue on schedule and Lego Club is still at 7:00 on January 14th, February 11th, March 10th, amd April 14th.

Make the Library your go-to place this winter! The whole family can enjoy fun, wholesome activities, the enriching experience of reading, and creative, imaginative play. Everyone is welcome and all programs are free!
