Winter Reads for Adults: January through February at your Scott County Libraries
It's well below zero, the wind is howling, and your car is buried. Need to get away? Well, you don't need to pay for an airline ticket to do so! Stoke the fire or turn up the space heater, grab a hot beverage, and sink into your favorite recliner with a nice thick book. It's time for Winter Reads. Read or listen to one book -- or many! Pick up a Winter Reads bookmark at the library, and rate and comment on the books you read. Give the completed bookmark to library staff to be eligible for the weekly prize drawing AND the Grand Prize drawing at your library.
