Participants are invited to the library to pick up a record sheet. On their own, children will record and track their reading progress when they read a book, or when someone reads a book to them.

When a participant has finished reading 10 picture books, or five chapter books, they can come to the library to receive a free prize. They can ski the library’s “mountain slope” successfully and get a chance to win a grand prize. If they read a book from the library’s Winter Reading Selected List, participants get an extra chance for the grand prize.  

This program is open to children through fifth grade. Note:  Parents of children younger than age 7 must accompany their child while participating in ski game.
