Read Away Your Winter Blues

  • January 1st – January 31st – Read Away Your Winter Blues
    • What better way to beat the winter time blues than by reading a good book. Read every day in January, write down what you read on the right day and bring your form back to the library. Each week that is completed you will receive a candy bar. Read every day of the month and pick out a book of your choice. Open to children 12 and under.

Pick up your calendar to keep track of your reading at the West Alexandria Circulation Desk.
