When the weather is cold, it’s time to find a hot read and join Virginia Public Library’s annual “Hot Reads for Cold Nights” reading program. This is the 18th year that “Hot Reads for Cold Nights” is being sponsored by the Friends of Virginia Public Library. Area residents over 18 are invited to register in the library or online to participate. To register online, click on this link and select the Hot Reads program.
This program is designed to promote reading for adults since reading is equally important for all ages. Each book read during the program will earn one entry in a big giveaway on February 29th. Participants must visit the library to check out library books and submit their entries.
Hot Reads Tuesdays will continue on Tuesday mornings from 10:00-12:00. Each week, members of the Friends of the Library will provide coffee and bakery to area readers. This is a great time to find out about new books and visit with your neighbors.
The Hot Reads celebration continues with the launch of the 2015 Winter Brown Bag Lunch Series beginning on January 14that noon with our first Adult Coloring Program. Adult coloring books have become very popular and libraries across the country are bringing this stress-relieving activity to their users. Bring your own coloring pages and pencils, or use pages and pencils provided by the library.
