The San Diego Public Library kicked off the new year with a winter Reading challenge, encouraging readers of all ages to explore how reading affects their emotions.
With this year’s theme “All the Feels”, the winter reading challenge runs from Jan 1 through Jan.31, 2-23, and invites readers of all ages to earn prizes by completing a combination of five books, five hours of reading, or literacy-based activities.
These Literacy-based activities include attending storytime at an SDPL location or sharing a favorite book with a friend.
“The new year is a great time to read something you enjoy, whether that’s discovering a new book or picking up an old favorite,” said Library Director Misty Jones. ”We hope the Winter Reading Challenge encourages people to visit their local San Diego Public Library location or check out the online catalog to find something engaging and inspiring to start 2023.”
Participants can register online and view a list of recommended books and activities by visiting sandiego.gov/WinterReading. Registration is also available in person at any SDPL location and participants can visit the SDPL calendar to find storytimes and book discussions near them.
According to the library, readers will be eligible for prizes including a “design your own” lunchbox or a cooler lunch bag.
