Winter Reading: Chill With A Cool Book

Winter Reading: Chill With A Cool Book

Our Winter Reading Program, Chill with a Cool Book, starts Dec. 1 and runs through Jan. 31 for readers of all ages. Registration is now open.

Readers will earn a registration badge just for signing up in Beanstack and will receive a small gift that includes a choice of a hot chocolate, cider or tea packet. Just stop by one of the Library reference desks once you’ve registered and select your gift.

To complete the program, readers must read and log at least 20 minutes a day for 21 days or more between Dec. 1, 2022, and Jan. 31, 2023. Those that do will receive one entry in our Grand Prize drawing of a basic gift membership to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, with unlimited visits and benefits for up to two adults sharing the same household and all children under age 21!

Those who complete the program also will receive a small gift (while supplies last), including:

  • a plush stuffed animal for youth (up to Grade 5).
  • a Koozie® with an invitation to a program to customize it in the MakerStudio for teens (Grade 6 and up) and adults.

Prizes can be picked up at one of the reference desks once readers have completed and logged the required reading.

Readers who log their reading each week also will receive a chance to win one of our amazing prizes! If you read and log at least three days in a week, you’ll receive one virtual ticket. Readers can earn up to nine drawing tickets, one for each week of the program. Those tickets can then be entered in a drawing in Beanstack for a chance to win one of several prize baskets or book bundles. All drawing winners will be announced after January 31, 2023, when our Winter Reading Program ends.

Also keep an eye on the Library calendar for lots of exciting winter-reading-related programs and events throughout the Library during December and January.
