"Reading is Snow Much Fun" will begin January 2 and run through March 30. The program, open to ages 18 and beyond, is held every year during the winter months and rewards readers for doing what they love to do --- read. Participation is simple. Receive up to 2 of the following prizes (while supplies last): mug, tote bag, flash drive or can holder for every five library books you read or listen to. Then, keep reading for more chances to win a gift card from the final drawing. Stop by the library to pick up a reading log or print one here.
Wintering by Minnesota author, Peter Geye, is the novel selected for Willmar’s second annual Community Read. The purpose of a Community Read is to offer an opportunity to read, think, talk, listen and grow together. Geye will be speaking at the Willmar Public Library on Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 PM. Because of limited seating it will be necessary to have a ticket for the event. Tickets are free and may be picked up at the Willmar Library after March 15th.
This program is sponsored in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
Local authors – indie, self-published, aspiring, and mainstream – can now create ebooks and share them with readers across the state and potentially across the country using free tools provided by Minnesota libraries through MN Writes MN Reads.
