Fall Into Winter Reading Challenge

Why should summer get all the fun? Reading is entertaining all year long.

The days are getting colder and the nights are getting longer — but reading always brightens up our day — so we’re challenging you to Fall Into Winter Reading. We realize you’re busy, so we made it simple. Grab a Bingo card from your local branch or download one from our website. There are two different cards, one for adults and one for youth — early literacy, children and teens.

Complete five activities across, vertically or diagonally to get Bingo. These game boards provide a variety of prompts to help you choose your next book. Then, return your card to the library to receive a prize. By turning in your card you’ll also be entered to win a grand prize drawing but that’s not the only reason to participate. Here’s some more …

The youth Bingo card has a range of literacy-building activities. In addition to the reading prompts, some squares can be completed by playing a game or creating a piece of art. Reading and playing with your children is fun bonding time and promotes development. Literacy isn’t just for kids —  adults can also benefit from exercising their imagination or trying something new.

Too busy to sit and read? Maybe you have a long road trip planned to visit family. Audiobooks make stories come alive in a new way and help keep boredom out of other mundane tasks. Listening to audiobooks can have benefits for all readers, such as improving critical listening skills. Whether you’re looking for inspirational nonfiction or an epic quest for the whole family, the library offers a variety of audiobooks to suit your tastes.

This can be a stressful time of year for many people so it’s important to keep your energy reserves filled by taking time for yourself. That might mean escaping into a cozy mystery but it could also mean trying a creative new hobby or finding something that makes you laugh. No matter what direction you take, the library is here for you.

Did we mention the grand prize? Yep, you could win a cozy winter warmth basket full of seasonal essentials to help you reach the maximum level of cheerful relaxation. All completed cards will be entered into a grand prize drawing, one for adults and one for youth. One entry per person. Entries must be received by Tuesday, January 31 at 5:30 PM. Happy reading.
