Newfane Public Library offers both Winter and Summer Reading Programs.
Winter Reading Program
During the Winter months, when it’s too cold to go outside and you’d rather cozy up with a good book the library offers a reading program that is open to people of all ages:
The Winter Reading Program allows patrons of all ages to try and win prizes simply by reading books or magazines! Each library book or magazine read or listened to is a chance at winning one of several prizes.
Summer Reading Program
During the Summer months, when the days are longer and there’s nothing better than a lazy afternoon with a good book, the library offers a program that is offered to various age groups:
The Summer Reading Program for Kids & Teens encourages reading to bridge the gap between school sessions. Our Kids program, for non-readers – 10-year-olds is a timed-reading (and/or listening) program. Reading and/or listening is tracked using 15-minute increments. Every 1.25 hours read earns a brag tag and a chance at winning one of several prizes.
Our Teen program offers Book Bingo, with every line of Bingo accomplished earning a small prize and a chance at winning one of several prizes.
Our Summer Reading Program for Adults and Older Teens is run just like our Winter Reading Program – every library book or magazine read or listened-to is a chance at winning one of several prizes!
*All books read or listened to must be library books: books and audiobooks can be physical items checked out of the library; eBooks, magazines and/or audiobooks downloaded from Overdrive or Hoopla; or Story Walk & Story Hour stories read or listened to.
