Join us for Wolfner Library’s Adult Winter Reading Program
“Getting to Know You”

Earn points for prizes by doing something you love: reading! Register for Wolfner Library’s Adult Winter Reading Program, “Getting to Know You.” The focus of “Getting to Know You” is biographies and autobiographies. Our talented Reader Advisors will create book lists of biographies and autobiographies of all sorts of interesting people. Here are the categories:

The Top 5 patrons who read the most digital or braille books during the program will be entered in a drawing for five grand prizes, which include a unisex talking watch and a Wolfner Library hooded and zippered sweatshirt.

All other patrons who have read 12 or more digital or braille books during the program will be entered into a general prize drawing.

If you haven’t already gotten a digital player, call your Reader Advisor today to have one sent to you. They are easier to use than cassette players and have the best sound quality ever. Plus, digital books do not have to be rewound! Order digital books or download them from the Web, or both, because any digital book you read counts in the “Getting to Know You” Adult Winter Reading Program.

Thank you to the Library Users Group of Missouri for generously providing the prizes for the “Getting to Know You” Adult Winter Reading Program!

 The “Getting to Know You” Adult Winter Reading Program is your chance to earn prizes for great winter reading, so get ready, get set, and read!

Digital players are flexible

Digital players are the simplest, most flexible players to use. All you have to do is push one cartridge into the player, and the book will play. The sound quality is better than ever before, and digital players allow you to place bookmarks and even set a “sleep” mode to tell the player when to turn off. Best yet, there is nothing to rewind with digital books. That’s right: there is no rewinding with digital books. Call your Reader Advisor today to get your digital player. You’ll be glad you did!

Finding Digital books in WolfPAC
Wolfner Library’s Online Catalog

If you’re one of our many patrons who have fallen in love with the digital player, and you want to know what digital books are available, just search WolfPAC, Wolfner Library’s online catalog.

Your search results will all be digital books!

It’s as easy as that. Enjoy reading your digital books in players with better sound, more flexibility, and no rewinding!
