Winter Reading Program 2021: Cozy Nights & a Good Book


It’s time for the annual WINTER READING PROGRAM!

Participating is easy–just sign up now at the Winsted Library, and get your reading log to keep track of what you read from January 1st-March 15th. There are monthly challenges for you to try, or you can read what you want, in any format. Reading Logs are available at the Curbside Pickup Cart in the foyer, or you can download one here.

Just remember, the more you read, the more points you’ll earn; the more points you earn, the more prize drawings you’ll be able to enter!

Rules of Play

*Program runs January 1-March 15, 2021*

*1 book per line/category

*Audiobooks, eBooks, and Non-Fiction books are fine

*Sheets must be turned in no later than Tuesday, March 16th 2021

Instead of Craftin’ Around at the Winsted Library, we’re making take-home craft kits for you! 

*In January, you’ll be able to color your own Winter Bookmarks. We’ll provide the bookmarks, some cardstock to back them with, and self-laminating sheets for you to use. Kits will be available the second week of January on the Curbside Pickup Cart in the Foyer. 

*For February, you can make a Danish Heart Basket for your Valentine! You’ll find everything you need in the take-home kit to do 4 different heart baskets. Kits will be available starting Monday, February 1st on the Curbside Pickup Cart.  

*In March, we’ll be Painting With Bob Ross! The kit includes a paint with water sheet, a watercolor paintbrush, and a coloring sheet from the Bob Ross Paint With Water book. Kits will be available starting Monday, March 1st on the Curbside Pickup Cart.
