Reading Blizzard @ IPL
Join the Winter Reading Challenge and create a blizzard in the Independence Public Library. Read books of your own choosing January 2 – March 2. Record and rate the books to earn snowflakes to hang in the front windows for your age group. The more you read the more snowflakes you earn! Babies, adults, and everyone in between will have a chance to win weekly prize drawings and books. Let's see which age group can make the most snow! To learn more and pick up your first reading log, stop in the library. For more information call 334-2470, email iplprograms@gmail.com, or visit the website www.independenceia.org/library.
