NOTE: Due to the lack of heat in the building, Linebaugh Library had to shut-down early on Monday at 12:45 pm (12/26/2022).

(Murfreesboro, TN) Resolve to read! Linebaugh Public Library will hold the fourth annual Harry Nelson Memorial Adult Winter Reading Program from January 22 through March 4, 2023. Linebaugh Library will celebrate with a kickoff event on Saturday, January 14, 2023. Jake Leg Stompers will perform prewar roots music from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. 


Patrons are challenged to meet a goal of reading and reviewing at least six books over the course of the program.  That’s six books in six weeks or a book each week. All formats are accepted and count toward the goal of six books. Patrons may sign up for the program beginning January 14, 2023. We will begin accepting reviews on January 22.

Each week, one reviewer will be randomly selected to receive a free book. At the conclusion of the program, every person who has met the goal will be awarded a gift card from Simply Pure Sweets.

One person completing six reviews will receive a Grand Prize: a $150 gift card from The Alley on Main. The name of the winner will also be engraved on a plaque that’s displayed in the library.

The 2023 Harry Nelson Memorial Adult Winter Reading Program is sponsored by The Friends of Linebaugh Library.
