Reading Buddies Kids Winter Reading Program and January Craft/Activity Kit
Let’s ring in the new year with a fun winter reading program for kids ages 2 - 12! This month’s craft/activity kit is being combined with our winter reading program. This year’s theme is Reading Buddies. The kit includes a stuffed animal reading buddy (and yes, you get to keep it!) in addition to a paper reading log with directions and a few fun crafts. Be sure to visit our blog post for January for an online reading option, more craft ideas and some interactive fun.

The reading program begins Monday, January 6th. Paper logs will need to be returned on or before March 6th. You can pick up your Reading Buddies kit at the Central Library or East Branch.

Two Grand Prize Packages will be awarded!
