Cozy Up to Reading!

Nov 12, 2023 ● By Siouxland Libraries

Cozy up to reading this winter with the Siouxland Libraries’ Winter Reading Program from December 4th, 2023 to February 9th, 2024. Sign up and log your reading at starting December 4th. 

The Winter Reading Program is a great way to stay motivated to read by completing BINGO squares and winning prizes during the cold winter months. Here are five things you can do with the Winter Reading Program this year:  

1. Read books that you love. The Winter Reading Program is all about reading books that you enjoy. So don't be afraid to pick up a book that you've been wanting to read or reread a favorite. 

2. Try new genres. The Winter Reading Program is a great opportunity to try new genres of books. If you're usually a mystery reader, try reading a science fiction book. Or, if you're usually a romance reader, try reading a historical fiction book. You might be surprised at how much you enjoy reading something different!

3. Read with friends and family. The Winter Reading Program is more fun when you do it with others. There’s BINGO cards for each age group so everyone can read and win prizes.

4. Attend Programs. All Siouxland Libraries branch locations offer special programs during the Winter Reading Program. These events include storytimes, book clubs, and author talks. Attending these events is a great way to meet other people who love to read and to learn more about books. See what’s happening at the branch closest to you: 

5. Win prizes! Complete BINGO squares to earn prizes and be entered into a grand prize drawing. All prizes are to be picked up in person at any Siouxland Libraries location. Prizes include aluminum water bottles, book lights, books, and other fun items. Grab your favorite blanket, get comfortable, and lose yourself in a good book for a chance to win a prize!
