Thorson Memorial Library director Lucy Anderson says she wants people to know that the popular winter reading program “Enthralling Books for a Frosty Stretch” is not just about reading; it’s about your growing relationship with the library.
“We want people reading, of course, but we also want to see new and old visitors, to hear your stories, and to have some fun together.”
By getting 15 stamps on your “Enthralling Books for a Frosty Stretch” card, you can also win a travel tumbler with a custom phrase etched on it by John Kreft.
You will get the first three stamps just by signing up. Every book you read earns you another stamp. But there are now many other ways to earn stamps.
Since February is Library Lover’s Month, until February 20, adult readers can earn stamps by taking a “Blind Date with a Book.” Choose a wrapped book, take it home, read and rate your date.
Or you can play Valentine Trivia or Valentine Scrabble at the library. With Valentine Trivia, you will look around the library and try to find, and answer, 30 questions. Valentine Scrabble, which is in partnership with Grant County 4-H clubs, will be set up in the computer lab. Both these activities are for older children, that can play by themselves, or adults.
On Valentine’s Day, stop by the library with your child between 10:30 and 12:00 noon and make a Valentine Heart Animal.
Or school-age kids can take the Lego Club Valentine Challenge between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. Please RSVP if your child is attending.
On February 27, drop in with your child between 4:00 p.m. and 5:30 for International Polar Bear Day and learn some fascinating facts about Polar Bears.
Do you love your library? Fill out a heart shaped card telling why and earn an extra stamp.
“We aim to serve,” said Anderson. “Maybe you have a pressing research question, or a quirky little fact you always wondered about. We can help with those too,” she said.
“Come on in and find out what enthrals you!”
