Reading is Sweet

Let's all listen to some 'ear candy'

Our Winter Reading Program is sweet! Join us in celebrating the joys of listening to audiobooks and reading aloud to friends and family, now through Friday, Jan. 10. Sign up at any library location to play Ear Candy Bingo. Families can work together to earn an “earful” of prizes for each child, and teens and adults can listen on-the-go to engaging stories in every genre for chances to win. Learn more ›
