Happy February everyone; let's spread some love and kindness all around this month.
Thank you, Beth!

Last month at the Upper Skagit Library we...
... began playing Winter Reading Fitness Bingo!
We partnered with 5b's Bakery this year for Winter Reading Fitness Bingo, which began on Jan. 15th and goes to Feb. 28th. Bingo cards are available at the library for anyone who wishes to participate. Complete a row of challenges on the card to win an entry towards the grand prize. Blackout the card to earn three entries towards the prize.
One grand prize winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.
Before turning in your bingo card to a librarian on the 28th, stop by 5b's Bakery with your card to get an UGLI Bar*!
