NEWTON —“Reading Is “Snow” Much Fun” is our winter reading program’s theme now through March 2 at the Gale Library in Newton. Children list each book they read on a reading log. When they reach their goal, they can choose prizes and new books from the treasure box. All readers receive a free book bag and are entered into the program’s end raffle for gift certificates and puzzles. There will be drop-in crafts to make, and word puzzles, mazes, and games to take home or do in the library. Come to the Gale Library, find some good books and get started!
