Event Details

Recommend books for other readers!

For each book (adult or teen) that you write up on a reader picks sheet and bring to the desk, we'll enter your name in a drawing to win a library tote bag, notebook, library mug, and book sale voucher! Your recommended book must be one we have in our collection at the Forest Avenue library. We'll draw a winner at the end of April.
