Winter Adult Reading Moments (WARM)

The Pearl Public Library presents its second annual Winter Adult Reading Moments (WARM) program which begins January 3 and runs through February 29, 2012.

The Library hopes to see WARM as an enthusiastic opener to adult programming in 2012 as they did in 2011. "The WARM 2011 program was a pleasant surprise," said Kimberly Coley, Reference Services Supervisor. "Initially, we didn't know how an adult reading program would actually be received during the winter months when a library can sometimes have slow days," said Coley. "WARM gave us the opportunity to have some fun and help boost library patronage. I was very surprised by the number of participants that we had. Our last WARM program was a huge success. I'm hoping this year will be even bigger."

Here's how WARM works: Any adult interested in participating can register at the library's Reference department starting January 3 and receive a reading log. After reading or listening (CD/audio books are allowed) to a total of five (5) books, the patron lists the titles on the reading log, and turns in the log for a small prize. There's a limit to one prize per patron. Patrons who turn in reading logs will be entered into a grand prize drawing.

The Winter Adult Reading Moments program is free and open to ages 18 and up. If you have any questions about this program, please contact the library at 601-932-2562 and ask for Kimberly Coley, or email her at rcref@cmrls.lib.ms.us.
