Winter Reading Program

Reading Is Snow Much Fun! The annual Winter Reading Program sponsored by the Pioneerland Library System, will begin January 2 and run through March 31, 2018. The program, open to ages 16 and older, is held every year during the winter months, and rewards readers for doing what they love to do:  READ.

Participation is easy: simply sign up at your local library. Glencoe & Brownton Libraries are doing similar incentives and programs. Participants will sign up on a snowman and when they are done reading a book, tell the librarian. Incentives and prizes will be given after every 4 books read. Read at least 12 books during the 3-month long program and you will be entered in a grand prize drawing for a free car wash! Readers are encouraged to read as many titles as they choose. Titles may be in any format including audio books and e-books.

Make READING IS SNOW MUCH FUN a part of your winter activities!
