Peabody Public Library's 'Dewey Decathlon' Winter Reading Program is underway

Article provided

Peabody Public Library's Winter Reading Program for adults kicked off January 15.
The library is hosting a 10-week reading program for adults, now underway and continues through March 25. The theme for the reading program is "Dewey Decathlon."
"We wanted to try something different this year to promote more diverse reading," said Deb Lowrance, Peabody Adult Services Librarian. "Not everyone is familiar with the system so hopefully this will help our patrons find and explore more throughout the library. We've also included more 'hands-on' goals for patrons to choose from like classes and videos. We hope everyone enjoys this winter reading experience."
The goal is for each participant to read two hours a week, and complete activities in the Dewey Decathlon packet. Participants can record their progress at the library and collect small prizes throughout the program. At the end of the program on March 25, 2018, participants who completed the program will be eligible for the grand-prize drawing.
Packets can be picked up at the library. If you have additional questions about the program you can contact the adult department at the library at (260) 244-5541 or Deb Lowrance at dlowrance@ppl.lib.in.us.
