Winter Reading Retreat

January 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Put on your favorite sweater, grab a book, and head to Hayner Library at Alton Square Mall for our first-ever book retreat! Sip on some hot cocoa, decorate a sugar cookie sweater, chat about books, and read one too! You are also welcome to bring your own drink, treat, and a blanket or anything else to help put you in the winter reading mood. Not sure what to read? Clear up your “to be read” list, check out a library book before you join us, use this time to finish a super-long book you’ve been intimidated by, read a few short stories, or cycle through a few books four or five chapters at a time. If you still don’t know what to read, we will also have winter-themed books available for check-out.

This is an open house-style program, so please feel free to stay for a short while or the entire time.

Space is limited. Please register by calling 1-800-613-3163.
