2021 READING CHALLENGE

Did you read a book this month?  If you did, we want to hear all about it!  You might even win a valuable prize!

That’s right, the Elmwood Public Library is kicking off the . . .

2021 Reading Challenge

If you read a book in January, email us at elmwoodlibrary@outlook.com and tell us the following:

  1.  Title
  2. Author
  3. Brief plot summary
  4. Did you like it?
  5. Your age group and name. Kids (under age 14).  Adults.

Entries for February reads are due on March 1. One entry per individual per month.

Our hope is to start a community conversation about books.  Also, by telling the library what’s popular in Elmwood and Murdock, we can better anticipate your needs and wants for our inventory!  Prizes include a $5 in EMMA bucks (good at several Elmwood-Murdock businesses) and a sweet treat to sustain you while you read your next book!  There will be one prize for awarded for an adult and one for a kid EACH MONTH during this promotion!  Your chances of winning depend upon how many entries we get each month. 

If you need a book to read, there’s still time! Stop into the library and pick-out a novel or two. Our hours are:

  • Mon. 3pm-8pm
  • Tues. & Wed 2pm-6pm
  • Thurs. & Sat 10am-2pm

Regular Hours Resumed!

The Elmwood Public Library has resumed its normal hours effective June 8! We still have a few pandemic adjustments to services, but we are glad to be able to welcome back the members of the Elmwood community!
