February 2017 Children's Programming @ North Lake County Public Library



During the month of February, North Lake County Public Library will offer its annual Adopt-a-Book program, an opportunity to “adopt” a children’s book and present it to the library’s collection. Community members can purchase a book to honor a special person or event, or to remember a loved one.  Each hardback book is $14. After a book is purchased, a plaque will be inscribed and permanently placed inside. For more information, call the library or stop by the circulation desk. February is “I Love to Read Month.”

Winter Reading!

Stop in the library to pick up your bingo-style reading log or print it from our Facebook page. Successfully complete seven squares on your WINTER! bingo card to be entered into a drawing in April. The program will run from December 21 to March 19. For more information, stop by, message us on Facebook, or give us a call at 406-883-8225.
