Welcome Winter!

Start off the new year right by signing up for the 2021 – 2022 Winter Reading Challenge.

Cozy up with a new biography, read a picture book to a child, or take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle and read a magazine. Download an ebook on your new tablet, try a recipe from a cookbook, read a graphic novel for the first time or, let the us choose for you by picking up any book from any of our curated displays around the library! The Winter Reading Challenge encourages you explore sections of the library you haven’t borrowed from before, make new discoveries and broaden your reading horizons.

This year, our Winter Reading theme is “Ten to Try!”

The rules are easy: simply borrow and enjoy an item from each of the ten categories, keep track of your progress on our website or app, and earn a cool winter beanie.*
