Looking for something to do while it's cold outside? Try our Winter Reading Challenge. Complete five of the activities for a chance to win one of ten $20 Buffalo Bucks prizes. Buffalo Bucks may be used like a gift card at any business in Kearney or anywhere in Buffalo County. This event is for youth ages 0-18. Youth may complete one challenge sheet during the contest period (December 15 – January 15).
Chill Out & Read! forms will be available in the Youth and Teen departments or found on our website. The deadline to return the entry form is 5:00 PM on Saturday, January 15, 2022.
This program provides an opportunity for youth ages 3–13 to practice their reading by reading aloud to a dog! Registered Therapy Animals and their handlers will be listening to youth read. Read five books or chapters to the team and earn a prize! This session is for the youth and therapy teams to work on reading. If you are an adult with questions regarding how to become a therapy team, please contact the Youth Services Librarian, Shawna Lindner.
