Winter Reading LogoThis winter, cozy up with your family and connect with your roots during Winter Reading: Your Family Story. Once you register in December, keep reading throughout the season and earn chances to win great prizes. This year, you can even stay warm inside and log your reading online!

If you're feeling stuck on what to read next, browse our reading lists or stop by one of our service desks to ask for a recommendation. You can also download an eBook or eAudiobook to enjoy­—they count for Winter Reading, too.
