Winter Bookopoly Challenge Begins!


The JKPL is once again offering a winter library program. This year, participants will be using a Bookopoly game board to track what they are reading or doing at the library and earn prizes.  Just like in the classic board game Monopoly, readers in Bookopoly will complete sets of challenges to earn prize entries. 

All ages of readers are welcome and participants can sign up as individuals or as teams. Stop in the library to register and pick up your game board or print the board here.  The winter Bookopoly Challenge will run January 3 through February 28. All entries must be received by March 4 to be included in the drawings.
