    And the Winner Is…

    You’ve all been wondering….

    You decided to subscribe to follow the blog to receive awesome, funny, totally informative and cool news from your favorite library’s new blog, and well… the potential to win Panera Bread for a year was a great incentive, too. So who won?

    Liddy is our bread-loving winner! She’s won a certificate to receive Panera Bread for an entire year.

    But don’t be sad if you’re not Liddy. There’ll be plenty more opportunities to win things, plus you’ll be up-to-date with what’s going on in the library, and being able to communicate with us here isn’t bad, either. In fact, head to the library lobby tomorrow at 3:00pm and say the magic words “Be a Smart Cookie: READ!” to get a tub of Papa Murphy’s chocolate chip cookie dough while supplies last.

    Congratulations, Liddy!!

    Winter Reading Club 2012: Be a Smart Cookie!

    It’s no secret I’m a cookie fanatic. I rarely turn down a cookie, especially if there’s chocolate involved. Chocolate chunk, snicker doodle, sugar, peanut butter, no-bake, you name it, I’m game. Throw in a glass of ice cold milk and I’m all set.

    Are you drooling on your keyboard about right now? Good! The reason I’ve got cookies on my mind is because of the library’s Winter Reading Club theme, Be A Smart Cookie – Read! What’s the Winter Reading Club, you ask? It’s a winter-long reading program that encourages people of all ages to read during the winter months (Jan. 14 – Feb. 29).

    Adults, teens and children can register for the Winter Reading Club online at Once you start logging your books in your online reading log you will automatically be entered for a chance to win the grand prize. The adult grand prize is a Kindle, the teen prize is a bundle of gift cards to Hot Topic, Rave, Starbucks and Cold Stone, and the children’s grand prize is a Winter Reading gift basket full of goodies. Throughout the Winter Reading Club we will be doing random prize drawings for Papa Murphy’s Pizza cookie dough tubs, too!
