Franklin Public Library is encouraging both adults and teens to snuggle up with a good book this winter through their winter reading program, which will kick off Tuesday, Jan. 3 and run until Feb. 28.

Adults and teens in seventh grade through high school can pick up a reading log at the library starting Jan. 3 and begin claiming prizes or prize entry slips Monday, Jan. 9. Participants will receive a prize for their first logged book and a prize entry slip for any book logged afterward.

Reading logs must be turned in by 8:30 p.m. Jan. 28 to receive prizes.

The library will also host three teen programs as a part of the winter reading program, including a "Toaster Oven Treats" program 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20; a "Valentine Videogame Showdown" from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11; and an opportunity to create crazy donut flavors and toppings during the "Delicious Donuts" program at 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24.

For more information about the winter reading programs, contact young adult librarian Keri Whitmore at 414-427-7642 or
