2018 Winter Reading Challenge

The Winter Reading Challenge is back and bigger than ever! This year's program starts January 1 and runs through March 31. To celebrate the Friends and the Foundation's 40th anniversary, this year's program will have 40 different challenges. Adults and teens can print off a log or pick one up at the library. For every four challenges that participants compete, they will receive an entry into prize drawings. We will be having drawings weekly for small prizes and all entries go into the drawing for our grand prize!

You can receive an extra entry for posting about what you're reading on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and either tagging the library or using the hashtag #ACPLWinterReads.

The reading log is available by clicking here. Be sure to get both pages!
