Join the Winter Reading Challenge: Now through January 26

Winter Reading at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library

Saturday, December 14-Sunday, January 26

Ages 0–4: It is never too early to build your child’s literacy skills. By starting early, you form the foundation for your child’s success later in life. Simple activities involving talking, singing, reading, writing and playing together will help your child. Pick up an activity log in Kids’ World then check off the activities you complete. When you have completed ten, bring the log back and select a free book to take home.

Age 5–Grade 3: Pick up your Winter Reading Challenge card at the Kids’ World Desk and determine your own reading goal. Whether you keep track of pages, books or time spent reading, use the card to mark your progress. When you are done, come in and select your free book. During the program, drop by the Kids’ World Desk to spin our wheel and receive an activity to take home.

Grades 4–6: Sign up for Winter Reading and challenge yourself to read something new. Pick up a punch card and a token at the Kids’ World Desk to get started. Let the Challenge Contraption decide your next book or activity. Complete four challenges to earn a free book!

A library card is not required for participation in the winter reading challenge. Sign up at the Kids' World Desk or at
