It’s not too late to make a Reading Resolution!

Fall is upon us, and Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to get back on track (or get started!) with your Reading Resolution! Those who meet their Reading Resolution goals will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card to their favorite bookstore. To be entered into the drawing, simply set a reading goal, meet it, and turn in your reading log to the library.
Traveling this weekend? Jump start your resolution with audiobooks for a quick trip and titles to listen to with the whole family. And don’t forget to sign up for our bookish enewsletters to help you meet your goal!
