Looking to welcome in the new reading year, or to get a head start on the summer bestsellers? Then the Thomas Branigan Memorial Library invites you to participate in the “BINGO Books” Adult Reading Challenge! Participants will be challenged to read five books across a variety of topics and genres. Any participant who completes all five books will receive an exciting prize of their choice. This free program will be offered from Monday, February 4th through Friday, April 26th, 2019.

Branigan Book Club
The Branigan BookClub (BBC) meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Staff Conference Room on the 2nd floor. For months with more than one book listed, you choose which one you want to read (or you can read them both). We’ll spend most of the time that month discussing the one the majority of those there read. Time permitting, we’ll also have a short review of the other by someone who read it. For more information contact (575) 528-4001 or firstname.lastname@example.org. When e-mailing please put BBC in the subject line.
