Are you looking for something to warm up your winter? Make reading and research your winter sports at Eckhart Public Library.
Readers and researchers of all ages can earn prizes for six weeks as part of Eckhart Winter Read, Monday, January 5, through Saturday, February 14.
In the Children’s Department, 10 books for pre-readers or two hours of reading for independent readers earns children from birth through fifth grade a prize. After earning seven prizes, children are entered into a drawing to win a grand prize – a book collection or a preschool storytime.
At the Teen Library, teens in sixth through twelfth grades can earn a prize after every five hours of reading. After earning five prizes, teens are entered into a grand prize drawing. There are five grand prize options.
For each book an adult reads, they will earn a ticket to drop into a prize drawing of their choice. In addition, each adult will get a prize every week as long as they read one book.
People can participate by reading anything from the Eckhart Public Library collection – books, e-books, graphic novels, manga, magazines, audiobooks, or e-audiobooks.
People can also earn prizes by doing research on genealogy, family history, or local history at the Willennar Genealogy Center. For each hour spent at the Willennar Genealogy Center, researchers will earn a ticket to drop into a prize drawing of their choice. In addition, each researcher will get a prize every week they research.
