Members of the Upper Hunter Shire Libraries including Aberdeen, Cassilis, Merriwa, Murrurundi and Scone Libraries, are invited to thaw the winter brain freeze by joining in this year's Winter Reading Program. This program is open to children from 4-12 years and young adults from 13-17 years and will run from June 20, 2016 through to August 31, 2016.
Participating is really simple, all you need to do is be a member, choose a mystery book on display at one of the listed branches, take your book home and read it, then return your book to one of the participating branches. Each book read will earn you a tag, five tags earns you a prize...its that easy!
