A program at the Glen Ellyn Public Library will not only offer readers the chance to exercise their brains, but it will help them keep moving physically. If that wasn’t a good enough way to start the year, there’s the chance to win $100 gift certificate too.
The first 250 adults who register for the library’s winter reading club, themed: “Exercise Your Brain” will receive a free pedometer.
The winter reading club kicked off Jan. 2 and will continue through March 15, according to the Glen Ellyn Public Library.
Participants in the program can register online or in person at the library. To register at the library, visit the second floor Adult Services desk. Or, online visit the website and click on the winter read club icon on the homepage.
“As the winter days become colder, people tend to spend more time indoors,” Adult Services Department Head Susan DeRonne said in a news release. “It is our hope that the Adult Winter Reading Club will encourage the Glen Ellyn community to take time this winter to exercise their brains with books from our collection and inspire increased fitness activity by supplying readers with pedometers.”
For every four books read, participants will be entered for the grand prize drawing for a $100 Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce gift certificate.
