January 29 marks another birthday for Kansas, and the McPherson Public Library is celebrating and encouraging adult readers to join their January Kansas Reads promotion.

Patrons who check out one book from the Kansas collection will receive a small Kansas themed prize.  Patrons who check out two Kansas books will be entered in a drawing to win a special prize. 

An anonymous library patron has purchased an unframed, signed print of the painting “A Kansas Bouquet”, by local artist, Robert Smith, and has donated that back to the library for the grand prize in this promotion.  See the 12 x 12 inch version of the painting hanging on the wall opposite the library’s service desk.
