Dassel Public Library’s Adult Winter Reading Program begins on Tuesday, January 2. Library users can sign up any time to participate in the library’s self-paced program, which runs through Saturday, March 16. Earlier registration means more weeks to meet the goals, and a wider choice of prizes.
When participants sign up, they will get a free book bag (while supplies last) and a reading log to keep track of the books they read. It’s okay to read fiction or nonfiction, old books or new, library books or personal copies, print, e-books, or audiobooks.
After reading and rating three books, participants can bring their reading log back to the library and choose a small prize. If they read three more by March 16, they can bring it back in to choose an additional prize. Completed reading logs will also be entered in a prize drawing for small gift certificates to local businesses, sponsored by the Dassel Friends of the Library.
Prize choices this year are mugs, booklights, pizza cutters, extra-large candy bars, notepads, and can coolers. The range of options will be available while supplies last.
