Library winter reading program starts Monday

Boulder City Library kicks off its adult and teen winter reading program Monday.

“Murder, Mystery and Magic in the Library” is the theme of the program, which will conclude March 28 with a murder mystery party.

To participate, adults and teenagers are asked to read or listen to a book and then fill out an entry slip and let the library staff know what was murderous, mysterious or magical about it.

“Be creative, we’ll accept anything, but you get good karma points for amusing us,” staff wrote on program information sheet.

Entry slips will be available at the main circulation desk and can be turned in at the reference desk once completed.

Participants can enter as many books as they would like each week, but can only win one prize per weekly drawing. Small prizes will be awarded each week and the grand prizes will be awarded after March 28.

Adults and teens 13 and older are eligible to participate in the program.

Additional entry slips can be obtained by attending library events during the reading program period. These include moves, crafts sessions and technical seminars.

The library is at 701 Adams Blvd.

For more information, call 702-293-1281.
