Moniteau County Library @ Wood Place has a variety of materials, resources and programs for our adult patrons.
Winter Read Program a Big Hit!
For the past 6 years, our adult patrons have participated in a reading reward program during the months of January and February that culminates in a drawing for a variety of prizes. For each book, ebook, or audio cd from this library that they read or listened to during that 2 month period, they filled out a chance to win. Our winners know that "Reading is 'Snow' much Fun" Remember, ALL readers are winners!
