Winter Jackets

Winter Jackets - winter reading for adultsA Month-Long Celebration of Reading for Adults

February 1 - 28, 2015

Celebrate reading this February at Saint Paul Public Library. Here's how:

Read a book. Share your thoughts. Receive a prize.

It's that easy to take part in our community book review. Pick up a book review form at any Saint Paul Public library, jot down your thoughts on the book, and take home a Winter Jackets bag or ice scraper (one prize per customer while supplies last). We'll display your review to help other library customers find new books to read.

Speed Date with a Book

February 19, 6 - 7 p.m. at Arlington Hills Community Center

Make a match... a literary match!

Rounds of 4-5 minutes each will give you a chance to explore new titles and staff favorites.

Chat about a favorite read (feel free to bring it along!), enjoy light refreshments, and go home with the perfect book.

Call 651-632-3870 or stop by the Arlington Hills library to register. More information ...

Read Down Your Library Fines

During the month of February, adults 18 and older can simply stop by their local Saint Paul Public Library, check in with the reference staff, and read in the library. For every 15 minutes you read, we'll take $1 off your fines (collection fees and book/DVD rental fees are not eligible).
