IditaREAD Winter Reading Race

Get off to the races this winter with the adult winter reading program, the IditaREAD Winter Reading Race. The program runs from Monday, February 3 through Friday, March 20. Adults ages 18 and up are invited to register starting February 3.

Read or listen to three books and assign them a “Tails Up” or “Tails Down” rating to complete a reading slip. All completed reading slips will be entered into a drawing for fun prizes at the end of the program. This years’ grand prize is a Triple Play Membership, which grants the winner an annual membership to Beaver Creek Reserve, the Children’s Museum, and the Chippewa Valley Museum! 

The Eau Claire County Humane Association will also be joining in the fun. Find your new mush pet at a special “Books & Beasts” adoption event from 2–4 p.m. on Sunday, March 15 at the library.

Unable to adopt at this time? You can still enjoy book time with furry friends. Read for 20–30 minutes to “mush pets” at the shelter to get your Mush Pet reading slip initialed. Mush Pet slips will be entered into the prize drawing, just like reading slips.

Pick up reading slips and Mush Pet slips at Information & Reference, or print your own using the links below.
