Yeti…Set…Go for the Prince William Public Libraries (PWPL) Winter Reading Program which started on December 15 and ends on February 28, 2022.

People may be familiar with PWPL’s summer reading program; this winter program always has bursts of fun for K-12 readers.

Readers can head to their local library to pick up a bookmark or log into Beanstack on their phone or computer to get started. Beanstack allows users to track their reading and various program activities.

When readers complete 10 activities (like finding the Yeti in their favorite library), they’ll be entered to win a special prize! One winner per branch will be drawn.

“The activities introduce children to the various resources available at Prince William Public Libraries,” said Rachel Johnson, Head of PWPL’s Communications Division. “They will be encouraged to read and visit our libraries, participate in programs and try out fun digital library sites like hoopla Digital.”

PWPL organizes this winter reading program because literacy is relevant year-round and they want to keep readers engaged.

“Very similar to our summer reading program, winter vacation gives children the time and opportunity to focus on literacy, learning and fun when they are away from school. “, Johnson said.

She said winter reading allows children in K-12 to learn as well.

The program is sponsored by Synergy HomeCare.
