Winter READ 2017 Coming in February!

destinations-2The Winter READ 2017: Novel Destinations begins February through March! Does winter make you think of travel and warm locales? Let Heyworth Public Library be your source of great reads to take you on a winter adventure. For adults and teens, we will hold the Fourth Annual “Blind Date with a Book” event during February. We have selected quirky, classic, non-fiction, and popular literature that will take you to a new location, and wrapped them up with a ribbon. Come in and choose a wrapped book as your “blind date”. Give it a read. Then fill out our “Rate Your Date” bookmark and return it with the book. We are not arranging marriages, and not a dime has to be spent! Just try a “blind date” – you never know which new favorite author or genre you might fall in love with.  All “Rate Your Date” bookmarks returned will go in a drawing for one of two Tervis Coffee Mugs. The last day to grab a Blind Date will be on February 28, but we will not draw a winner until March 22 to allow readers three weeks to get their “dates” read.

Join us in March and read for prizes all month long for all ages. We will celebrate travel and all things Dr. Seuss. Readers will receive a ticket for every book, audiobook, eBook, or magazine checked out in March for a drawing of prizes. Thank you to Dower Auto Sales for supporting the Winter Read each year with a free 5-quart oil change! We have many other prizes to select from, too. The Winter READ ends March 31 and the drawings will be held on April 3.

Family Story Time returns in February on Thursdays at 6:15 p.m. throughout the month until March 16. Mark your calendars and bring the kids for a great time of stories, music, and crafts.

Don’t forget to checkout our Book Sale area. We are brimming with great reads, music, audiobooks, Disney VHS, and other DVD movies.  All for great prices that help support the library in purchasing the extras not in the budget.

Are you looking for free eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, and music for your digital device?  If it uses apps from the Google Play or iTunes stores, you can use our FREE library apps.  Visit the library website at heyworthlibrary.com for tutorial help sheets with the various e-readers using Overdrive, Axis 360, Freegal, or BookMyne. Alternatively, call to schedule a face-to-face tutorial (473-2313) on using the library’s apps.
