Winter Reading Challenge

This winter, the Boston Public Library is challenging you to read a book by an author from each of six geographic regions: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Oceania. Start reading on January 1! Complete your reading log and turn it in by the end of the day on February 28 to receive a Winter Reading Challenge enamel pin.

You can record the books you read in your reading log, which you can pick up at any Boston Public Library location starting in January. The reading log is available to download below starting January 1. If you want to keep your reading log, or cannot visit a BPL location to turn it in before February 28, simply record the books you read using this form.
