We’re going to reward everyone over 5 years old with a special mug for reading at least 3 books during January! You can cozy up with more great books and your prize as soon as you complete the challenge! We have the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge for kids 5 and under.

Print books, ebooks, audiobooks and graphic novels are part of the Winter Reading Challenge. Our digital collections at OverDrive and Hoopla are always available and provide immediate access to thousands of great reads. If you want help finding amazing reads, sign up for Browsing Just for You and a librarian will select books for you based on your interests.
