February photo contest #umTakeABreak

February 8, 2021 — 
Good news, it’s almost reading week! The days are getting longer, and we are nearing warmer weather. We know that this year has been tough in so many ways, so we think that it’s important to keep celebrating the little things that get us through our days. In the spirit of celebrating the small things, we want to see how you take a break! Do you go on your daily walk? Do you make yourself a cup of coffee? Do you take a cozy afternoon nap? We want you to take a break and post a photo of it on Instagram using the hashtag #umTakeABreak for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the bookstore.
