Check Out Our Reading Challenge!

This reading challenge will be held from February until April 2018. By participating in the reading challenge each person will have a chance to enter into a Stefanelli’s Candies basket drawing. Spring is coming but until then, there is reading….and reading earns you entries to win chocolate!

Here is how the reading challenge works:
This reading challenge is made of two groups: group 1 is K-6th grade and group 2 is 7th grade-Adult. One library visit with a book check-out earns you one ticket. At the end of the reading challenge, the library staff will draw one winner for each group.
