Winter Reading Has Started!

Registration for Windsor Locks Public Library's 3rd annual adult winter reading program, COZY UP TO A GOOD BOOK - ANY TIME OF DAY, will begin on January 2, 2013. Enthusiastic area readers are invited to beat the winter doldrums by participating in this fun yearly event! This winter we'd like to emphasize that any time is a great time for a classic novel, so for our weekly prize drawings we have randomly paired some great classic meals and snacks with some equally great classic (and future classic) books that will really whet your appetite for reading! Registration will be take place throughout January and February. There is no "required" reading... just read what you like (including magazines) and submit your titles read (or finished) during January through early March to be eligible for prizes. Join us anytime! Visit for online registration and more information, call 860-627-1495, or visit the Windsor Locks Public Library at 28 Main Street. All adult readers are welcome!

Nancy Wenzel would like to invite all past and present members of the Windsor Locks Library Needlework Club to celebrate the holidays together on Tuesday, December 11 at 6:30 PM. The group will hold a Christmas pot-luck dinner in the library's Community Room and everyone is asked to bring a dish to share.  If you haven't been to the club lately, this is a great opportunity to reconnect and share an evening of holiday fun with your fellow knitters, crocheters, and other needlecraft enthusiasts.  No reservation is necessary.  Join us!
