Warm Winter Read


Warm Winter Read Wednesday 1 June - Sunday 31 July

Calling all early risers, morning motivators, lunchtime readers, after work relaxers, and bedtime snugglers - incorporate reading into your daily routine with the Warm Winter Read. Create healthy reading habits this winter by tracking your progress online via Beanstack or by collecting a paper tracker from one of our branches.

Start a book from your 'to be read' pile, finish that book you put down months ago, or find something new while browsing the library shelves - the Warm Winter Read is waiting for you!

Want to participate?

Registration is now open!

Log each day you spend time reading, between Wednesday 1 June – Sunday 31 July, on the Beanstack Tracker app (App Store or Google Play), via the Beanstack website or on the Warm Winter Read postcard.
