The Hygge Community Read has begun

hygge book coverGet cozy! During the months of January and February 2019, the library will running a hygge-themed Community Read. "Hygge" is a Danish word representing a feeling of comfort, coziness, and togetherness, especially in the long, cold days of winter.

A Community Read is like a town-wide book club. We're encouraging everyone to read the same book: The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living, by Meik Wiking, and will be having programming related to this book and its themes throughout the next two months.

Join us for Fika Fridays, a Cookie Contest, Saturday family movies, pajama storytime, and more! See our online calendar for a full view of the months ahead, and sign up for our weekly newsletter below for a reminder of what's coming up week-to-week!
