Winter is the absolute best time to read! Nothing beats cozying up under a nice warm blanket with some delicious coffee (or hot chocolate) and an amazing book. The only thing that could possibly make it better is to get rewarded for your reading.

This winter, we’re offering three different reading challenges for adults, teens and kids so everyone in your family can get in on the fun.

Children’s Reading Challenge
January 3–February 28

Challenge yourself this winter, and resolve to read! Pick up your reading log at the Children’s Services Desk or download and print it below. Complete 10 challenges on the log to earn a winter plush toy and an entry in the grand prize drawing. Complete a bonus challenge to earn a free book and another entry in the grand prize drawing.
