Attentions all readers, young and not-so-young!  

The UMW reading program is open to everyone!  We have added new books to our lending library for all ages and invite you to participate.  There is a sign out sheet in our lending library along with information about the program.  You can also contact members of UMW for more information or follow this link:    https://www.unitedmethodistwomen.org/readingprogramYou can get books from other sources such as the public library as well.    A small group meets every other month to discuss what we are reading for anyone who might be interested in our book club.   Those who read one book from each category and return the form before the end of August will get a certificate and be entered in a drawing.
