#RogersReads Reading Challenge is a year long program starting in February celebrating “Love Your Library Month.” Complete the twelve prompts on the Reading Challenge handout by February 2019 to participate. We will have 12 monthly drawings and 1 final drawing for prizes. Additional information and rules can be found on the handout.
If you want to show off your progress on social media, tag us and use #RogersReads! We love seeing what people are reading! We will be creating reading lists on Facebook and Tumblr to help you choose what book to read all throughout the year, so keep an eye out.
Lunch & Learn is a monthly program presenting outside speakers on a variety of topics – educational, inspirational, and entertaining.

An archive of previous programs can be found on the Library’s YouTube channel. This program is supported by the Friends of the Rogers Public Library.
