Winter Reading Challenge 2023

How Does the Winter Reading Challenge Work?

We're encouraging adults to "Warm Up with a Good Book" this winter and participate in our 2023 Adult Winter Reading Challenge!

Stop by any Public Libraries of Saginaw branch between January 3 and February 25 to pick up a bingo-style card. (Or download and print the PDF below.)

This reading record will challenge you to read across genres and formats during the months of January and February.

Complete a bingo by filling in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, or by filling in the four corner squares. You have until Saturday, March 4 to return your completed card and claim a prize! (While supplies last.)

Stay warm and read on!
