Winter reading Challenge

This year, the Public Libraries’ Winter Reading Challenge is all about getting cosy together to share the love of reading. 


It kicks-off on 6 January 2022 and runs for eight weeks, until the end of the spring half-term. Why not encourage your pupils to take part – let parents and carers know they can join in through the Hampshire Libraries Kids' Zone or at their local library.  


Children can read or listen to any four books to complete the challenge. This includes books they read or listen to for school, with family members and friends over Zoom, bedtime stories, non-fiction books, eBooks and audiobooks.   


Those who visit their local library will be given a collector’s card and each time they finish a book they will be able to collect a sticker. At the end of their challenge they can visit the library to receive their finisher’s certificate, but the most important thing is that your pupils enjoy some winter reading for pleasure!
