If you participate in our Summer Learning Program, then you'll LOVE our Winter Program!

Snuggle up with a good book and read this January to be entered to win AMAZING prizes! Register online to participate in our annual winter reading program at All ages and reading levels are welcome to participate.

Visit your local ACPL branch in January to get your exclusive Winter SPARK 2019 bookmark to help you keep track of your reading time throughout the month, and enter your progress online to be entered to win a variety of prize packages donated by local businesses.

Log your time online and earn a prize drawing entry for every hour you read (max of 10). In addition to earning prize drawings, you'll also help contribute to our community goal of 500,000 minutes read!

    Yes, Jenn, please feel free to continue entering those minutes -- every one counts towards the goal.  Way to go!

    Once I have entered 10 hours for the drawings, can I still enter minutes to contribute towards the 500,000 minute goal, or is each person only allowed to enter 600 minutes? I will continue to enter minutes as I read, if it will count towards the goal.

    That's wonderful, Sharon!  Did you enter your time into our online log?  If not, please stop by one of our desks and ask us to help you do so.
