Hot Reads for Cold Nights returns to the Northfield Public Library this winter.  During the cold, snowy months of January and February, curl up and read some books and win prizes at the library!  Join the library Hot Reads program starting Monday, January 6, and read for prizes until Friday, February 28.

After reading a book, each patron will fill out a slip with their name and phone number and a few lines describing the book.  The name and phone number section of the paper will be cut off and put in a fishbowl.  The comment section of each slip will be posted on the bulletin board downstairs, near the new books.  Patrons will be able to browse each other comments for ideas of new books.  From the names in the fishbowl, three winners will be drawn each week.  Each winner will receive a $5.00 gift certificate to a downtown business. Once again, patrons who use the Northfield Senior Center will be able to sign up and drop their book slips at the Senior Center.   The completed slips will be posted at the library, and the participants will be included in the weekly drawings.

Several library programs are being planned for winter months.  The programs are free and open to the public. 

On Tuesday, January 7, at 7:00 PM, Alison McGhee, adult and children’s writer, will speak at the Northfield Public Library

On Thursday, January 9, at 7:00 PM local nutritionist Noel Aldrich will present the first of five seminars on nutrition.  The first talk will be “Proactive Health Strategies.” 

On Saturday, February 8, from 1:00 – 3:00 PM, Michael Cote will present “Beginner’s Guide to Home Brewing.”

Other programs are being planned and will be announced.
