Children

* Join in "Read-Opoly," an all-ages reading program that will be held Jan. 15 to Feb. 28.

Get in the game and play Book Bingo this winter. Pick up a game card at the front desk and follow the directions in each square to make a bingo. Complete one bingo to be entered into a prize drawing. Complete two bingos to earn a free game or puzzle at the game swap. Fill your bingo card and win a book to keep as a prize and have a nameplate placed in a library book.

If you have old board games and puzzles you're not using anymore, bring them to the library to be traded in for "new" games at the "Game Swap." For every game/puzzle you donate, earn a ticket to be redeemed for a new game. Earn an extra ticket by completing two Book Bingos in the reading program. Bring in your donations Feb. 1-23; make sure donated games contain all their pieces and are in good condition. Redeem your tickets Feb. 24-28.
