Winter Reading Program 2018

Reading is Snow Much Fun, the annual winter reading program sponsored by the Plum Creek Library System and its member libraries, will begin January 1, and run through March 31, 2018. The program, open to ages 16 and beyond, is held every year during the winter months, and rewards readers for doing what they love to do: read.

Participation is easy: Simply sign up at your local library. Your Library will give you a punch card or reading log to record the number of books read. Then get set to read at least 12 books during the 3-month long program. Readers are encouraged to read as many titles as they choose, however in order for their punch card or reading log to be counted, a minimum of 12 books read is required. Titles may be in any format including audio books and e-books.

Most Plum Creek Library System libraries offer patrons a prize for completing the Winter Reading Program challenge and various incentives are available.

Make plans to stop at your library today, register, and participate in the 2018 Winter Reading Program.

eBooks MN

Ebooks Minnesota, an online ebook collection spearheaded by Minnesota’s libraries, is open to Minnesota readers. The collection is accessible online at and via free apps from iTunes, Google Play, and Kindle. There is no charge to libraries or individuals who wish to use the collection, and no username or password is required. Ebooks Minnesota is open to all readers within Minnesota’s borders.

No process is required to “check out” a book. Readers can access any book in the collection at any time regardless of how many other readers are also using that book. This feature makes the collection particularly useful for schools that may wish to assign a single book to an entire class or even an entire school. Likewise, community book clubs, no matter how large, can read books together without worrying about checkout limits or due dates.

The collection contains more than 2,000 books, including titles from these Minnesota publishers: ABDO, Lerner Publishing Group, Cherry Lake Publishing, University of Minnesota Press, Milkweed Press, and Coffeehouse Press. Nonfiction titles from Arcadia Publishing about Minnesota and its history are also included in the collection. A selection of popular titles that are in the public domain, such as "Dracula." and “Jane Eyre,” completes the collection.
