The Winter Reading program has begun! As of today, 102 of you have already signed up for the program – which is awesome! This year we are trying out something new: you do not have to have an Algonquin Library Card to participate. The program goes until Thursday, February 28, 2019 and you can sign up at any time between now and then. Kids will get to spin the wheel for a registration prize and may pick out a softcover book when they finish their first log. Five additional bonus logs may be completed for extra prize-drawing chances. Reading is counted by 15-minute increments (geared for older kids reading chapter books) OR for each book you read (geared for younger kids reading picture books or readers). Our reading programs are not just for the Little Ones either. Adults and teens may participate too, but they must sign-up in the Adult Services Department.
And one final thing — Audio books count as reading! Magazine or newspaper articles count as reading! Comic books count as reading!
