Click on the link to register for the Winter Reading Challenge with the library.
This year it's all about getting cosy together to share the love of reading. Children need to read or listen to any four books which can include books they read or listen to together, bedtime stories, non-fiction books, ebooks and audiobooks. Every time they finish a book, they fill in an online Winter Reading Challenge reading record.
Children's ebooks and audiobooks are free to download using Hampshire Libraries BorrowBox service, with lots of titles always available without a wait. To use BorrowBox, you need a library membership number and PIN.
There are links to some of our recommendations on the Kids Zone webpage as well as information about downloading ebooks and audiobooks. Children who can't easily access ebooks and audiobooks online can also use Hampshire Libraries new Ready Reads click-and-collect service to borrow books. Library staff will regularly handpick a selection of books for those that request the service to collect from the entrance of their local library.
Children can register to take part online and keep a record of the books they've read. A collectors sticker folder is also available for those children who can t easily access online services. Children will be emailed a completer s certificate when they've reached a total of four books in their Winter Reading Challenge reading record. They'll be sent emails along the way when they add new books to their reading record.
If children aren't already a member of Hampshire Libraries, they can join to take part.
