The Bartow County Library System is encouraging patrons to curl up with a good book for the “Between the Covers” adult winter reading program, which includes a drawing for a $100 Visa card.

“Our winter reading program is a way to get adults reading during these cold, dreary months,” Adult Services Coordinator Colleen Knight said. “It’s nice to curl up with a good book and [the program] gets you back in the library and experience the joys of reading again.”

She said popular authors patrons are thus far seeking in 2013 include Robert Jordan, James Patterson, Lee Child and Robert Grace.

“We’re actually a popular materials library, so we have popular materials people want whether they be movies or books or e-books — we’ve moved heavily into e-books and actually have more e-books than Cobb County,” Knight said. “We do try to keep with the latest trends and we’re just a warm, welcoming place.”

To celebrate the program, the library will be hosting more than 35 individual programs for enjoyment and learning opportunities in the upcoming months. These include trivia nights, a murder mystery theater, a genealogy class and e-book classes. For seniors, there will be bingo and Mexican Train Dominoes.

There also will be book discussions, movies and an Author Festival in March with more than 20 authors.

To participate in “Between the Covers,” register for the program, either in person or online through March 15, and then read three books and attend one library program. Patrons completing the program will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Visa card.
