Coming up this week...

Join our Youth Winter Reading Challenge! Read a book between now and February and tell us what you think! Rate and review the book you read and turn it in on the cart outside the library, or log your reviews at northshorelibrary.beanstack.org. For every book you read and review, you will be entered into a drawing to win a prize!

Sign-up for our #OwnVoices Reading Challenge today at northshorelibrary.beanstack.org! This all-ages challenge focuses on #OwnVoices books – books by authors from marginalized or under-represented groups writing about their own experiences and from their own perspective.
