Adult winter reading is here!

This year’s theme is hygge!  Hygge is the Scandinavian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.  We’ve put together two very hygge baskets to raffle off this year that include goodies like a signed Alice Hoffman book, Scandinavian cookies, and a handmade blanket from one of our own librarians!  To enter, pick up a bookmark at the reference desk, or download one here, read any book, fill out that review and bring it the library.  We will accept entries from now until February 19.  There will also be several Scandinavian themed events to attend. Click read more to discover them!
