Earn points, collect badges, win prizes.

When an individual signs up for the CCPL Winter Reading Program, they earn their first badge and are able to receive an Imagine Your Story T-shirt. T-shirts can be picked up in the branches or via curbside pickup or at the Mobile Library. 


In order to complete the Winter Reading Program, participants must earn 100 points. Participants earn points through reading minutes, books, logging reviews or completing challenges under the activity badges.

Participants complete the program simply by reaching 100 points, no matter how these points are accumulated. Participants do not have to earn every badge in order to complete the Winter Reading Program.  A participant could acquire points solely from reading without doing any of the other activities and still complete the program.
