Weekly Newsletter ~ February 6, 2013

In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, the Greater Federated Women’s Club of Heyworth is sponsoring a drawing for three Dr. Seuss books during the month of February.  For every book checked out, patrons will receive a ticket for the drawing. You may choose the book you want by placing the ticket in the canister of the title you would like to win.  On March 1st, we will draw three lucky winners.  Thank you to the Federated Women’s Club of Heyworth for helping share and promote the love of reading to our community.

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 rest of winter.  Read Undercover from February through March to be entered in a drawing for an exclusive Heyworth Public Library mug!  On February 1 sixth graders – adults can pick up a Read Undercover game sheet.  There are different genres and types of library materials 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.
