It will also run through March 4.

Linebaugh's program has new options this year. While participants can still read 6 books, their reviews will be completely online through the Linebaugh website, Visit the Winter Reading tab to sign up. Everyone who submits a review will be eligible for a weekly drawing for a $20 gift card to Books-A-Million. All who submit 6 reviews receive a Fine Free Pass and a free book.


Linebaugh participants can also choose to play Winter Reading Bingo. Come by the library to pick up a bingo card to play. All who get Bingo (by reading five books in a row) will receive a fine free pass and be eligible for a drawing for one of two prizes: $75 gift card to The Gavel restaurant or a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.

For Linebaugh participants who choose to submit 6 reviews AND finish Bingo, they will be entered in a drawing for the Grand Prize of a Chromebook! Linebaugh's reading program is made possible through the generous support of The Friends of Linebaugh Library.


Smyrna participants who read 6 books and turn in 6 reviews will receive a goody bag. Sponsors include: The Friends of Smyrna Public Library, Lamplighter Theater, Malco Theatres Smyrna, and Omni Hut. Visit the front desk at the Smyrna Branch to sign up and learn more about the program.
