Winter Reading Program

2023 Winter Reading Program

Winter Reading Program

The Winter Reading Program will begin over Christmas break and we want you to be able to track that first week!  Beginning on January 1, 2023 and continuing through February 28, 2023, the Winter Reading Program will be running. This is sponsored by the Northern Lights Library System and Three Cities Public library.


What is the Winter Reading Program?  It is a chance for anyone of any age to read and win prizes!  This is open to everyone, from preschool age to adults!  All you have to do to take part is log your hours of reading until the end of February. Listening to someone read and audio books also count.  

The easiest way for you to log hours is online. Simply go to However if you do not like to enter your hours online you can fill out a paper copy and submit it by dropping the paper off by Feb. 28th. Submitting online will get your name entered locally and for the Northern Lights prizes as well. If paper copies are handed in I will submit online as well so you can be entered for the Northern Lights prizes. Also there is a new bonus entry for anyone who reads 15 minutes on Friday’s and submits that time online on Friday’s. We are also competing with other libraries within Northern Lights for which community can have the most participation in the Friday 15 competition:)
