Feeling the winter blues? Break out of it by playing READO with us at the Morrisville Public Library until Mar. 1. READO, our winter reading challenge, is open to both kids and adults, and is just like regular Bingo, but with books. Pick up a READO card at the library and try to make a “Bingo” as you read the books on the card. Then turn in your for a drawing to win a prize at the end of the program - a 3-D pen set for kids and a Kindle Fire for adults.
