Summer Reading Prize Distribution

Dig Deeper!
Dig Deeper!

Summer Reading prize distribution is fast-approaching, and we have some great prizes to give out this year! We have small pizzas from Toppers, custard from Culver's, cheeseburgers from McDonald's, ice cream from McDonald's, and a free book to give you! Because the library's building is currently not open to the public, we'll be doing distribution outside the library in the learning plaza from 9 AM to 12 PM on the dates listed below. Please try to come on the day that coincides with the first letter of your last name, but if you can't, feel free to come on a different day. The time frame is drop-in, and we will not run out of prizes.

Monday, August 10: A through E
Tuesday, August 11: F through K
Wednesday, August 12: L through P
Thursday, August 13: R through Z

We have enough prizes for everyone, so we will absolutely not run out by the end of the alphabet. If you are unable to claim your prizes during those times, please reach out to winonapl@selco.info or 507-452-4592, and we'll work with you on a different pickup time.

Reading Recommendations

We know many of you like coming to the desk to ask our librarians what you or your child should read next. Good news! We're still more than happy to do that for you! Just fill out the information in the form and one of our librarians will respond to you with a few title suggestions. If you have questions, feel free to email winonapl@selco.info.
