Winter Reading Clubs

"Snowed Inn" Adult Winter Reading Club

Welcome to the "Snowed Inn" at Longwood Public Library! You may “check-in” for your winter stay as early as January 7. “Check-out” is no later than March 1. During your stay, you may read or listen to as many books as your heart desires! “Snowed Inn” is proud to present many programs for you to enjoy during your time here. You can have as busy an itinerary as you wish, or sit quietly and enjoy the wooded view from our terrace suite. Our special offerings this year include a weekly raffle prize of a frosty mug and your choice of a new bestseller. At the end of your “snow-cation” you will have a chance to win the grand prize of a $100 Amazon Gift card along with several new books. For every book you read or listen to, and every program you attend you may fill out a raffle ticket. Stop by the Adult Department for registration details.
