When winter winds howl, warm up with a good book! Join the Kids’ Winter Reading Program: All Aboard the Reading Express!
It’s cloudy and gray outside, but inside the Library you’ll find a winter wonderland of imagination and fun. Climb aboard the Library’s Winter Reading Express, where events, prizes, and more await.
Kids (newborns through grade eight) can join the Winter Reading Program. When they sign up in the Kids’ Library, they’ll receive a bookmark, a booklog to record the books read, and a reading challenge.
Kids who reach reading goals (determined by the reader’s age) by February 28 receive a sticker; a raffle ticket; coupons for free pizza from Pizza Palace, hot chocolate from Brewpoint Coffee, and more; and their name displayed on our “Train Depot” bulletin board!
Register at the Kids’ Help Desk anytime from Dec. 27 until Feb. 28 with one of the following:
An Elmhurst Public Library card, an Elmhurst school ID, or an Elmhurst school report card.
Birth-kindergarten: Listen to 40 books
Grade1 & 2: Read 10 books
Grades 3-8: Read 5 books
