Groundbreaking Reads

This year’s theme for the Garfield County Libraries’ Adult Summer Reading program is “Groundbreaking Reads,” and the New Castle Branch Library wants to know which books have been “groundbreaking” to you. A groundbreaking read could be a book that impacted you, an important work of literary achievement, or a book you believe everyone should read — we will leave the definition up to you. Share your groundbreaking reads with us, and you could win lunch for two at a local restaurant. Just stop by the library in New Castle to fill out one or more entry forms. The winning entry will be pulled on Monday, Aug. 5.
