‘Fall’ into reading at Yukon library

Adult fall reading program kicks off Sept. 1


Join the Mabel C. Fry Public Library for its annual adult fall reading program with the theme “All Together Now,” based on kindness and friendship.

There are two parts to the program at Yukon’s library, 1200 Lakeshore.

First, participants can read books and win prizes. Simply register for an online reading log by visiting the library’s website, http://www.mabelcfrypubliclibrary.com

From Sept. 1 through Oct. 5, participants can enter how many minutes they read into their log. Minutes spent listening to audiobooks also count toward the reading minutes.

Paper logs are available at the library for anyone who prefers a non-digital way of tracking. 

Weekly prizes, including a “Love My Library” hat and book of the winner’s choice, will be drawn from those logging minutes.

Upon reaching 1,000 minutes read, participants will be entered into the grand prize drawing for prize baskets full of goodies.

The fall reading program is open to adults ages 18 and up.

Yukon’s library will offer free events every Thursday at 7 p.m., Sept. 7 through Oct. 5.



  • The first event takes place on Thursday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m. with Extreme Animals. Attendees will learn about fantastic animal friends at this live show, featuring some favorite cuddly creatures.
  • Come together with other puzzle enthusiasts for “Puzzle Pandemonium” on Thursday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. There will be a puzzle swap (bring one to trade – in good condition with all the pieces) and a puzzle race to earn puzzle prizes.
  • “Be Kind to Bees” on Thursday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. Local beekeeper Susan Turner will explain the basics of backyard beekeeping and what people can do to help save the bees,
  • Attendees will use their DIY skills to help spread positive messages Thursday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m. at “Intro to Printmaking.” Participants will learn how to make their own rubber stamps and print with them.
