The Winter Reading Challenge Begins on Sunday!

While we’re all braving the cold, challenge yourself this winter with the Winter Reading Challenge. Beginning on the first day of winter (December 21) and ending on the first day of spring (March 20), the Winter Reading Challenge is a season-long bingo game.

No matter what you like to read, it’s possible to complete this challenge. Cross of squares by filling in what you read during the winter that satisfies that bingo square. In spring, everyone who completed the challenge will be entered in a drawing for the challenge prize.

Bingo cards are available in the library, or choose one from this download.

January 8 Book Club Pick

Book Club's next pick is The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor; all are welcome to join the discussion after school in the library on Thursday, January 8.

From Goodreads: "When Alyss Heart, heir to the Wonderland throne, must flee through the Pool of Tears to escape the murderous aunt Redd, she finds herself lost and alone in Victorian London. Befriended by an aspiring author named Lewis Carroll, Alyss tells the violent, heartbreaking story of her young life. Alyss trusts this author to tell the truth so that someone will find her and bring her home, but he gets the story all wrong. Fortunately, Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan knows all too well the awful truth of Alyss' story and he is searching every corner of our world to find the lost princess and return her to Wonderland so she may eventually battle Redd for her rightful place as the Queen of Hearts."

If you weren't able to get a copy of The Looking Glass Wars at the last meeting, stop in the library to pick one up this week. The official website for the book is, and there's a lot of cool extras about this series there.

The books and meetings for the rest of the year have been set, so join us on the following days if you're interested in any of the books we'll be reading later this year.
