Each reader will be entered to win a grand prize. When we meet our community goal of 500 books read, a lucky library patron will get to “Pie a Librarian” on a Facebook Live. At 1000, Sports Reporter/Anchor Chris Roush will get a pie in the face and 1500 books read Chief Meteorologist Mike Bracciano will receive a pie in his face. Happy reading, St. Joseph!
