The Minong Area Library is sponsoring a "Beat the Covid Blues" reading contest.

Each month from January through March one lucky patron will be chosen to win a $25 gift card from the Minong Area business of their choice.  Each time a patron checks out a book or audiobook (no DVD's allowed) they fill out a slip and place it in the drawing box - one slip for each book.  The more you read the more chances you have to win.  A winner will be drawn at the end of each month. It's as easy as read and win!

A new children's book : Julia's Magic Shoes, written by H.B. Boortz has been added to the library collection. It was illustrated by Abby Schroeder who happens to be a granddaughter of Penny Schroeder who lives on Nancy Lake in Minong. She is a high school student and the author is her mother.
