Trail club hike
Kanawha Trail Club will sponsor a "first day" hike at 2 p.m. Jan. 1 at Kanawha State Forest. The hike will be led by the Kanawha State Forest assistant superintendent.
The West Virginia Library Commission, the West Virginia Center for the Book and Kanawha County Public Library will continue the West Virginia Reads 150 Plus reading challenge. The yearlong reading initiative encourages teams of any size to read books in any format (printed book, e-book, audiobook etc.) from any source, from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31 of 2014. Teams are encouraged to set their own goals. Read at least 151 books, but the sky is the limit. Books can be on any topic, fiction or nonfiction. All ages can participate. If a team member is too young or unable to read, count the books you read to them toward the team goal. KCPL reading clubs will continue as usual, and participants can count books read for both the reading clubs and the WV Reads 150 Plus challenge. The library will provide reading suggestions and team updates on Facebook, Twitter and in a bimonthly e-newsletter for team leaders. Register for the reading challenge at any KCPL location. For information, call the main library at 304-343-4646, ext. 1287.
