Sweater Weather Reading Challenge: 02/24/2021


While chillier weather rolls in, the Minot Public Library is bringing the community a cozy, new reading challenge. The Sweater Weather Reading Challenge asks you to read outside the box, by choosing a new genre or a book you would not have otherwise read. Seriously, you only need to read one book a month to be entered for some great prizes. Adult Services Librarian, Zhaina Moya, says “we want our patrons to try new books and see if they can discover great reads they may not have otherwise read.” For instruction on how to start using the app click here!
