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 enjoy the fun. The challenge begins Monday, January 9 and ends Sunday, February 19. Happy reading!
Adult Winter Reading (Ages 18 and older)
Read or listen to books or audiobooks for 500 minutes—that’s just 12 minutes a day. Any kind of reading counts! You can win weekly Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards or even our grand prize of a Barnes & Noble gift card. All participants that read at least 500 minutes will be entered into the grand prize drawing. You must be a Fountaindale Public Library cardholder to participate.
Teen Winter Reading (Grades 6–12)
Read or listen for 60 minutes per week to be entered into weekly prize drawings. Then log your books, eBooks, graphic novels and audiobooks. All participants who reach the weekly reading goal will be entered to win a Target gift card and a prize book, so be sure to log your minutes often. You must be a Fountaindale Public Library cardholder to participate.
Children’s Winter Reading (Ages birth–grade 5)
Challenge yourself this winter, and resolve to read! Pick up a snowman game board from the Children’s Service Desk. Complete challenge activities that allow you to move forward on the game board. You will earn a small prize when you’ve made it halfway. Make it all the way around the game board to get a special prize and a voucher for a free book from the Friends Book Cellar.
