Warm Winter Read 2024

The Warm Winter Read is back!


Running from 1 June 2024, the Warm Winter Read aims to encourage adult readers across Victoria to create healthy reading habits by tracking the days participants read over June, July, and August 2024.
As the temperature drops, we want you to make time for yourself and your chosen story every day, whether it be morning, noon, or night!


State-wide bookish prizes are up for grabs (every website sign-up is an automatic entry) and we will have two Gannawarra Library Service prizes just for our members!


To enter the State-wide Warm Winter Read, click WWR24 Join Now, come into one of our branches, grab a bookmark and scan the QR code, or grab a 'Warm Winter Read Reading Journal' in-branch and enter your details to go in the draw.


Entry into our Gannawarra Library Service members draw requires you to submit a 'Warm Winter Recipe' - simply bring into any of our branches a hand-written, printed or photocopied version of your favourite Warm Winter Recipe, (if it's in a special recipe book, we can copy it for you) fill out the entry form and hand to staff. You can enter as many times as you like - keep those recipes coming!

Recipes will be displayed and available to share, (we will scan each entry, so if you see a recipe you'd like to try, just ask a staff member and they will print a copy for you). The winners will be drawn at the end of Winter and notified.

Good Luck!!
