Adult Reading Program

The 2017 Grant Country Public Library Adult Reading Program begins February 27th and is set to conclude on Saturday, April 8th.  This year’s theme is “Exercise Your Mind-Read.”

The adult reading program offers rewards for doing what you already love and incentives to read for those currently not avid readers.

“Exercise Your Mind-Read” encourages adults to keep their minds healthy through the power of reading.   Patrons are challenged to explore fitness, nutrition, stress relief techniques, and other self-improvement skills through a good book.

Special events will be held throughout the program giving patrons opportunities to read, register for weekly prizes, receive instant prizes, relax, research and reflect.

For each book “read” through the 6 week program, patrons will receive a registration slip to “register” for a weekly prize.  Any book, magazine or audio book is acceptable and qualifies for the program.  Patrons who are enjoying eBooks can even bring their e-readers into the library and be given credit for those titles as well.   Patrons can also complete themed activity sheets to “receive” prizes.

Need to “relax?”  On Thursday, March 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th from 5:30-7:00 the library will host adult coloring open house.   Coloring is an activity that we tend to associate with children, however it turns out coloring can be beneficial for adults for its de-stressing power. Bring a friend and join the adult coloring sessions as a time to create and relax.  Patrons are welcome to bring their own supplies but it is not necessary.

On Thursday, March 23 local author Holli Seehafer who writes under the pen name, Cadee Brystal will present an Author Talk at the library “reflecting” on her book series, “Lessons of Love in Miller’s Bend.”  The event will start at 6:30.  All adults are welcome to join the fun!
