The Brainerd Public Library is offering its second annual winter reading program for adults, Hot Reads for Cold Nights.
This informal program gives library users a chance to win prizes for reading. Participants may read any type of books that interest them, including nonfiction, mysteries, romances, etc. The program will run through March 31 and is free. Participants may sign up at the front desk at the library at any time throughout the program.
Participants will receive a bookmark and a reading log. They will use the reading log to record the title and author of the books read, as well as a short comment about each book. After reading 15 books, participants will turn in their reading log and receive a decorative Hot Reads for Cold Nights magnet.
At this time, they also may complete an entry form for the end-of-program drawing. Drawing prizes include oversized coffee mugs, notecards, a sweatshirt and two tapestry tote bags.
Avid readers may complete numerous reading logs during the program. Each completed log entitles the participant to an additional entry in the drawing. However, only one magnet per participant will be awarded.
Completed reading logs may be included anonymously in a notebook of Hot Reads for library visitors to browse. This notebook is useful when looking for ideas of good books to read or new authors to try.
Stop by the Brainerd Public Library to register or call Wendy Lee at 829-5574 for more information.
