Dec 05, 2019

The Cumberland County Public Library is offering a month long Winter Reading and Activity Program from Dec. 15 through, Jan. 15 for people of all ages. This program encourages reading and participation in library programs.

Children and teens can track their reading goals and library program participation on logs available online or at any library branch. Return completed logs for a free book. Participants can continue reading for a chance to win a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card.

Adults can pick up a BINGO card and mark off a BINGO square for participating in activities such as attending library programs, using library services or reading. After completing a row, column or diagonal BINGO, return the card to any library for a reusable stainless-steel straw with carrying pouch. Adults will have a chance to win a cozy winter-themed gift basket at each location in addition to a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.

The reading incentives and prizes, provided by the Friends of the Library, Inc. are available only while supplies last.
