The Winter READ 2013: Read Undercover begins February 1st!  Does winter get you down or inspire you?  Either way, let Heyworth Public Library be your source of great reads to get you through the winter.  Read Undercover from February 1 through March 31 to be entered in a drawing for an exclusive Heyworth Public Library mug!  On Feb. 1 adults can get a Read Undercover game sheet.  There are different genres and types of library material listed on the sheet in rows of four.  You choose if you want to select books and materials from the game sheet across, up or down, diagonally, or all 4 corners.  Record the four titles on your game sheet, and turn it in to be in the drawing.  Children kindergarten through fifth grade can use a Read Undercover reading log, and for every four books read they will be entered in our drawing for  exclusive Heyworth Library mugs as well.
