Winter Read - February 2013

Happy New Year!

Hello Visitor,

We hope you enjoyed Winter Read this season and are experiencing a wonderful 2013. While this is the final month of the program, be on the lookout for information on our online summer reading program!

snowflakeJoin us on the Pioneer Library System Facebook page every month for our online book discussions, trivia, and fun facts.

We will be asking fun trivia questions about Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events throughout the rest of February and Dr. Seuss trivia in March to celebrate their birth months.


Are you looking for your next world of imagination to get lost in? Some of the worlds from your childhood have been turned into movies and TV shows. Reread the tales and then go watch them. All of them are available from your hometown library.
