Winter Reading Program 2021

WRP 2021: Cabin Fever Reliever

How It Works

  1. Get your Winter Reading Package

Book a curbside appointment to pick up a Winter Reading Program package, including your reading log, your team, and a team bookmark. Your reading will not only count towards your own score, every minute will help your team towards ultimate victory!

  1. Start reading

You can log anything and everything you read between January 1 and February 28, 2020. Books, eBooks, graphic novels, magazines, newspapers, audiobooks, reading to others or being read to all count.

  1. Log your reading

Use your reading log to write down how long you read for. It can be as short as 5 minutes – don’t worry, 5 minutes adds up!

  1. Submit your reading minutes

This year’s WRP has been designed to be as flexible as possible. You can save your minutes till the end, total them up, and submit them all at once – or you can make a submission every single time you read! If you submit often in smaller chunks, however, you’ll get to see how you’re contributing to your team’s progress in real time.

Submit Online Call to Submit

(phone calls are answered during operating hours only)

Please note that due to COVID-19 distancing and quarantining procedures, we cannot take reading logs given to us at the front desk. You can, however, read them out for us to record for you!

If you fill up your reading log, you can make a curbside appointment to pick up a new one or if you have a printer at home, you can download and print off as many as you like.
