What is Warm Winter Read?
The Warm Winter Read aims to encourage adult readers across Victoria to create healthy reading habits by tracking the days participants read over June, July and August 2023. While reading is its own reward, you'll also go in the running to win some bookish prizes!

To participate in this challenge, library users are required to register for an account through the Beanstack app or by picking up a paper Reading Journal from the library.
Log your reading:
Participants are asked to log each day they read something, regardless of whether they read for five minutes or five hours. Participants are also able to log a book they are reading, including start date, pages completed and finish date if they would like.
