Snowy Reading Club


The hustle and bustle of the holidays can be enough to throw any good routine off balance. This winter, the Arlington Public Library wants families to take time to remember to read, write, sing, talk, and play together, with My Snowy Reading Club!

My Snowy Reading Club is an online reading challenge where the whole family can earn badges for reading time and literacy activities. In addition, there will be prize drawings for tickets to the Arlington Skatium, Ice at the Parks, books, and more.

Visit from December 1 to January 31 and create an account to get started. If you participated in the library's Summer Reading Club, you can use the same login information from this summer. Instructions on creating a new account can be found on the library's website.

In addition to tracking your reading, there are several great programs happening in December and January that you won't want to miss. Check out the schedule below and mark your calendar!
