Get Rewarded for Reading!

When you snuggle up with a good book this winter, why not get rewarded for it? Everyone is welcome to visit the library and sign up for one of our Winter Reading Clubs for a chance at some pretty cool prizes- just for reading! Our theme this year is Every Book’s a New Adventure– read on for the information on each of the reading clubs, and their prizes!

Children’s Clubs

Children can register for either the Little Mateys (birth-6 yrs) or Treasure Hunters (7-11 yrs) Winter Reading Club! Registration begins Monday, Jan 6 and ends Friday, Feb 7. The last day to report your reading is Friday, Feb 14 by 4:30 pm. All raffle winners will be pulled on the night of the 14th. Pick up your adventure map reading log at the Youth Services desk. Get a raffle ticket for each hour of reading for a chance at a bunch of great prizes, including gift certificates to local shops! 

Teens: Survival Edition

Visit the Teen Desk to sign up and get your reading log, and earn raffle tickets towards great prizes, just for reading! Sign up starts on Monday, Jan 6th, and the last day to redeem your reading log is Friday, Feb 14th. The teen raffles this winter are for three prizes –a Survival Basket, Wilderness Basket, and a Book Basket. 

Adults

Visit the main level circulation desk to sign up and get your Winter Reading Bingo Sheet! Challenge yourself to read something new and different while you play reading Bingo. The challenges range from easy (read a book with a red cover), to a little more specific (read a local author), but they’re all fun! Some of our favorite challenges this year are ‘read a book a friend loves’ and ‘read a book made into a movie.’ Get a raffle ticket for every book you use to check off a box, and get 5 extra when you get Bingo! Prizes this year include gift cards, book bundles, and aquarium tickets! Sign up is ongoing, and the last day to redeem your reading sheet for raffle tickets is at 5:00 pm on February 14. 

Want to talk with others about your winter reading, or your favorite books? Come to our “Read What You Want” Book Club on February 20, 6:00 – 7:30 PM and talk with other avid readers about your favorite books! We hope to see you there. Happy Reading!
