Community members of all ages are invited to participate in the library’s 11th annual Winter Reading Program beginning on January 3rd! The program is open to children, teens and adults and will run for eight weeks through February 28th. The 2023 theme is “Reading Makes You Bright!” and encourages readers to expand their horizons through our collection of books and online materials.
How it works:
As in years past, participants will complete one entry slip for every book they read during the program and enter them into prize drawing boxes at their local branch for a chance to win exciting prizes in our weekly drawings. Plus, all the tickets submitted during the program will be entered into a grand prize drawing for everyone who participated! Entry boxes for each age group will be available at the Goleta Valley Library, the Isla Vista Bookvan, Solvang Library and Buellton Library.
Participants can read in whatever format they like best, including print books, graphic novels, eBooks, and audiobooks. We have started to receive new books again for the first time in several months, so there has never been a better time to visit your library and discover your next great read!
Happy New Year and Happy Winter Reading, library patrons!
