WINTER READING PROGRAM

Escape the cold this winter curled up with a good book!

Children birth through 5th grade read 5 books by January 31 to get a sticker. Teens in 6th through 12th grades read 2 books to get up to $10 of library fines waived from their accounts.

All books logged will go toward meeting Alexandria Library's reading goal. If all participating libraries meet one nation-wide reading goal, "Shark Tank" investor Mark Cuban will donate $25,000 to charity.

The program begins December 17. Enroll through Beanstack or pick up a paper log at any Alexandria Library.

 

Kids Winter Reading

Kids can either log books read or read to them or complete an early literacy activity sheet for a surprise.    

Teens Winter Reading

Overdue fines up to $10 will be forgiven if you are a middle or high school student who registers, reads, and adds at least two book to your reading log.
