Warm Winter Read
Published on 30 May 2022
Hume Libraries is participating in the PLV Warm Winter Read this year, from 1 June to 31 July 2022.
The Warm Winter Read aims to encourage adult readers (16+) across Victoria to create healthy reading habits by tracking the days participants read over June and July 2022. If you always mean to read more often, but never get around to it, this is the challenge for you!
To participate, all you need to do is sign up on Beanstack, log your reading, and complete challenges. Ask your friendly library staff if you need help signing up, or if you want a book recommendation. Books, eBooks and audiobooks all count towards your goal.
