‘Book Your Winter Getaway’ reading program starts
“Book Your Winter Getaway,” the annual winter reading program sponsored by the Plum Creek Library System and its member libraries, began Jan. 2 and continues through March 31.
The annual winter program, open to ages 18 and older, rewards readers for doing what they love to do — read. Participation is simple: sign up at your local library, and pledge to read at least 12 books during the three-month program.
In Rock County, library patrons who complete the challenge will receive incentive prizes and individual libraries will be recognized for the number of new participants enrolled in the program and most books read throughout the three-month period.
For more information call the Rock County Library at 283-5040.

Until the completion of renovations, library hours will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. The facility is closed on Sundays.
The Rock County Community Library will be open in the basement during renovation. A limited collection of library materials (books, DVDs, CDs) will be available for checkout. Wifi will be up and running; however, patrons will need to bring their own devices. There will be no computers or laptops available.
Patrons may use their library cards at any of the 24 public Plum Creed Library locations including Edgerton, Pipestone, Worthington and Adrian.
