Bradford Public Library Winter Reading Club begins

Bradford Public Library is sponsoring a Winter Reading Club for teens and adults! This year’s theme is: Make Reading Your Winter Sport! The club will last through April 1. Readers will fill out a book slip with their name, phone number and title of the book, place the book slip in the Winter Jar. When April 4 arrives, the library will be drawing for prizes. Come in to the library to check out what you might receive if you are a winner! Any questions can be addressed to the staff librarians at 448-2612.

Looking for volunteers

Teen and Adult Volunteers are needed for the “Books That Hook…” Reading Mentor Program for Kindergarten through third graders. There will be a training session for interested teens and adults on several easy to use reading methods that can assist the children with fluency, left-to-right orientation, sight words and how to choose a reading book that is correct for them. The training session will begin on Thursday, Feb. 18 and last from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. All materials will be provided for the mentors. The “Books That Hook…” reading mentor program will take place the second and fourth Tuesdays for one hour. Bradford Public Library’s goal is to begin this program during the month of March. Also, any parent, grandparent, teacher or childcare provider can sign up a child who is in Kindergarten thru third grade. Contact Mrs. Roeth at 937-448-2612 for additional information.
