Adult Winter Reading Challenge, January 4 to February 15

This year’s Adult Winter Reading Challenge theme is the Danish concept of Hygge (pronounced HOO-GAH), an idea that embraces coziness and small rewards (more information can be found here). As usual, our WRC involves earning raffle tickets for great prizes by completing tasks on a game card. We are also celebrating this year’s Challenge by holding a special Hygge Day celebration on January 31 – and everyone is invited! We will have hot cocoa and a comfortable, cozy atmosphere. Stop by the Reference Desk to get signed up for this cozy winter challenge.

Library Moon Walk

Imagine walking to the moon, a mere 238,900 miles away. Sound intimidating? What if you had your friends, neighbors, and colleagues help? The Upper Hudson, Mohawk Valley, and Southern Adirondack Library Systems believe that together, the communities of the Capital Region can go the distance. To make it happen, the three systems have secured a grant for the Library Moon Walk from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.

Why a Moon Walk? We’re encouraging people in the Capital Region to get moving and embrace healthy lifestyles. As part of the initiative, we ask you to track how much you move: – with the goal of walking (or moving) enough to get to the moon.
