‘Read your way’ across the peninsula

Reading can help warm the soul through winter’s bitter months and offers an array of health benefits that include reduced stress, increased brain function and improved creativity.

Start reaping some of reading’s rewards this winter with the 2015 Adult Winter Reading Program at the North Olympic Library System.

Designed for adults ages 18 and older, this year’s program takes place through Feb. 28.

Participating is easy: Simply visit any NOLS library to pick up your Travelogue game board and then “read” your way around the peninsula.

For every 100 pages you complete, you receive one entry in a Grand Prize drawing on March 3. The more you read, the better your chances of winning.

To keep readers motivated, each peninsula library will be hosting events, including author visits and workshops, throughout the program.
