You may have noticed in the local paper already, but our adult winter reading program, "From Page to Screen," started this week! To participate, all you need to do is register for the program, read three books of your choosing, attend one adult program, and submit your completion! When you complete the program, stop by your local library branch and pick up your completion prize - a limited edition library mug! Each completion is an entry into our grand prize drawing after the program ends on February 28, 2015.
As an added bonus, we're taking votes on our list of nominations for the best books of 2014 - these books were chosen based on how many times they were checked out by our patrons, and their popularity on Goodreads and LibraryReads. How many have you read? Get a few more titles read by the time votes are due on February 13th! We're having a "Read" Carpet Awards Night on February 20, 2015 to announce the winners, and we'd love to have you there!
Since the theme is Hollywood-related, we've got a few programs in store that fit the bill. We've got our usual Movie Nights on the first Tuesdays of the month. We've got movie-related Trivia Night on January 23rd. We've got a Gone with the Wind Book & Film Discussion on January 29th. And a staged reading on February 6th of Ron Hutchinson's play "Moonlight & Magnolias," a comedy about the writing of the script for Gone with the Wind.
And while you can read whatever three books you choose to participate in the program, we'd love for you to check out the lists we made of books that went "from page to screen," and of novels about film or film stars, available in our Reader's Corner, with print copies available at the library.
Stop by the library and see all the fun things we have to offer! We love seeing you!
