Warm Winter Read is back

Published on 30 May 2024


Gannawarra Library Service members aged 16 years and older are encouraged to track the number of days they read during winter as part of a popular Public Libraries Victoria initiative.

The library service is supporting the Warm Winter Read initiative for a third consecutive year, which begins on Saturday, 1 June and runs through to Saturday, 31 August, with participants in the running to win some great prizes.

“The Warm Winter Read program is a great way to develop the habit of reading or for those who read regularly, to track how many times they read each week,” Gannawarra Shire Council Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Rollinson said.

“It’s easier to find time to read than you think. Listen to an audiobook on your commute to work, walking the dog, or while completing household chores; swap scrolling time for reading time; or simply replace one episode of a binge-watch with a chapter or two of a great book.”

Residents wanting to participate can do so by visiting https://vic.readbooks.com.au/wwr to create an account or visit their local Gannawarra Library Service branch and collect a flyer to track their reading.

“Our friendly Gannawarra Library Service staff can also assist if you are stuck finding your next book to read,” Mr Rollinson said.
