Readin’ for the Season: The 2023 Winter Reading Program

Written by: Beth L., Adult Services Librarian

Whether you’re tucked into a blanket at home or perched in a chair at the airport, the holiday season is the perfect time to catch up on your reading. This year, the Round Rock Public Library invites you to join our Winter Reading Program.

It’s simple. From Monday, December 4 to Tuesday, January 16, kids, teenagers, and adults alike can log their reading in our online portal, ReadSquared.

And you can read whatever you want! Books, audiobooks, graphic novels, magazines—if it’s got words, it counts. Read a picture book to your grandchild? Log it. Listened to a mystery in the car? Log it. Finally got your hands on a copy of Dog Man? Log it!

Plus, for every minute you read, you’ll earn one point toward a prize. Earn 300 points, and you’ll get to visit our Winter Reading Prize Shop! We’ve got stickers, coupons, and more.

The Prize Shop opens on Monday, December 11 and closes at 8:00PM sharp on Tuesday, January 16. Find it at the library’s third floor service desk. Don’t miss out!

To kick off the Winter Reading Program, we’ve teamed up with Round Rock Operation Blue Santa to support their annual toy drive.

Every year, Operation Blue Santa provides toys, food, and gift cards to more than 1,500 individuals in the Round Rock community. We’re proud to support this incredible nonprofit, now celebrating its 45th year in operation. We hope you’ll join us. Bring unused, unwrapped toys to the library between Saturday, November 25 and Monday, December 11. Drop them off at our third floor service desk. We’ll pass them along to Operation Blue Santa, where they’ll be wrapped and distributed to families in need.

And that’s not all! Donate at least one toy at the library, and we’ll enter you to win a set of 4 free passes to the Blanton Museum of Art. We’ll notify the winner on December 12.

The Winter Reading Program wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors! Thank you, each and every one of you.
