Warm Up with Winter Reading

December 17 through February 28

For Children through grade 5

Children through grade 5 are invited to sign up for the Winter Reading Program and receive free books – just for reading!

  • Each time you read 15 minutes, color an empty shape on the reading log.
  • You can read anything – books, graphic novels, magazines, listen to audiobooks, TumbleBooks, or have someone read to you.
  • When you have colored all the empty shapes, return your reading log to the children’s Question Desk by February 28 to receive a free book!
  • You may complete 3 logs to receive a total of 3 prizes.

Logs can be obtained at the children’s Question Desk, or you can print a copy from home!  (No registration necessary)

For Adults and Teens (6th grade and higher)

  • Choose a free book from the prize cart for every 4 books you read (win up to 3 prizes).
  • Keep track of what you read by recording each title in the reading log book stack.
  • Enjoy a cookie treat from The Urbana Free Library Café with your first book prize.
  • Remember that eBooks, audiobooks and comic/graphic novels can all be included on your log.
  • Collect your prizes at the first floor Information Desk.

Logs can be obtained at the first floor Information Desk, the second floor Reference Desk, or you can print a copy from home!  (No registration necessary)
