From January 11th to March 5th, Roanoke County Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Simon & Schuster. Books Like Us is a celebration of diversity, harnessing the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book. This Winter, participating communities are invited to explore these books, from authors spanning an array of diverse backgrounds.
We challenge our patrons to read at least 2 books before March 5th and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at rocolibrary.beanstack.org.
Want to spice up your reading life? Make a Blind Date with a Book during the month of February.

The library will notify you when your date is ready and you can pick it up curbside, at the drive thru or in the library. When you are done, fill out the Rate a Date form to be entered into a raffle to win a fun prize.
