All of our readers are welcome to sign up for the ongoin Summer Reading Program at the library beginning on June 27th. Participants will receive a free tote with reading log, bookmark & pencil when they sign up at thhe library.
ADULTS: For each book that an adult reads, he or she will be entered to win a gift certificate to a local participating business. Get ready for your mani-pedi, latte and cupcakes as Esthetica, Bake Works and Mazza's are all on that list of sponsors. A drawing at the end of August will reveal the lucky winners.
EARLY READERS: You don't need to know how to read independently to participate. For every ten picture books Early Readers finish they will receive a coupon from one of our sponsors like Rita's Water Ice, The Custard Hut or Applebees. Our young readers will also be eligible for a grab bag prize after every ten books. We know how much little ones like rewards!
MIDDLE READERS & YOUNG ADULTS: Those who have entered the world of chapter books will receive a coupon for every six reading level appropriate books that they read— holding onto the traditional summer six.
Library Circulates First Kindle
The Otto Bruyns Public Library of Northfield is proud to say that it has officially checked out a Kindle for the first time to a library patron. You may recognize this patron, as he is also a staff member, Russ Goetz. Come on in and check a Kindle out for yourself. What better way to see what all the hype is about? Take a kindle home and download ebooks for free through the library. Patrons who would like to borrow a kindle must sign a contract before checking out. Feel free to stop in and take a look at our Kindle Policy.
