Passive Programs for Cozy Winter Fun

Sometimes you just want to pop into Cedarville Community Library to grab a book or movie for the weekend, and don’t have time to come to one of our programs. We get that. While you are checking out your books, though, take a peek on our counter for our passives display!

A passive program is something that a patron can do in the library (or at home) without librarian assistance. We might have puzzles, adult coloring pages, or sometimes a game with a drawing for a small prize. We try to ensure that we have a different passive each week. Maybe you’d like to try sudoku, stress-bust with a coloring page, or work a crossword or word jumble. Usually the puzzles at the desk are geared towards adults, but anyone can take one. We often have activities in our children and teen areas as well. And for those who would like to play inside the library, we have supplies behind the desk. Just ask!

This winter you’ll want to check out our extra-special passive. We will be having an Adult Cozy Winter Reading Challenge. Until the first day of spring, your mission is to read 6 books from different categories in hopes you will try something new. Perhaps you’ll find a new author or genre you like. Categories for winter 2019 include a Cedarville Staff Pick, a genre you don’t normally read, a book set in a different country, a biography or memoir, a book on the bestseller list, and a cozy mystery. You can use our catalog to discover titles in these categories, NoveList, or you can ask one of our librarians for a list of suggestions. You may have noticed our Staff Pick carousel in the library with some titles we have read and enjoyed. We love making suggestions, and are here to help.

This passive program is strictly for adults, as there will be a drawing for a small local business prize, thanks to our Friends of the Cedarville Community Library. But we will still have more puzzles and games for all ages throughout the year.

Whether it’s our Cozy Winter Reading Challenge or any of our other games and puzzles, stop by and try a passive today!
