Boulder Junction Library promotes Library Lovers MonthSubmitted: 02/01/2013
Story By Lyndsey Stemm

BOULDER JUNCTION - Sub zero temperatures can make you want to stay home and curl up with a good book.

That makes this cold snap the perfect time for Library Lovers Month.

The Boulder Juncion Public Library is celebrating the month to help people in the Northwoods get over the winter "blahs".

You can donate ten dollars to the library and get your name put on a heart in the window.

But they're also offering a little incentive to hit the books.

"Each time a patron checks out materials they'll be entered in a drawing," Boulder Junction Public Library Director Cherie Sanderson said. "And at the end of each week we'll be drawing the winner of a $25 Boulder Bucks gift certificate which can be used at our local businesses."

You can check out books to enter the contest once per day.

It'll run through the end of February.
