Winter Reading Program – January 14-March 15, 2019

This is the Library’s theme for the Winter Reading Program is Movie vs Book. This was so popular last year so we decided to bring it back again in 2019! Read a book that has been made into a movie, watch a movie that is based on a book, or do both! Selections must be read/watched between Jan. 14-Mar. 15, and can be read and/or watched individually or as a family. There are forms to complete after each is finished; just turn into a librarian at the Kindred Public Library to be eligible for a prize drawing.
