Welcome to Harford County Public Library Winter Reading 2022, Celebrate with a Good Book!

Created especially for adults and high school students in grades 9-12, Winter Reading runs Tuesday, December 21, through Saturday, March 26.

Participation is easy and fun! Adults must read or listen to at least 5 books and high school students must read or listen to at least 3 books.

Once you complete this part of the Winter Reading program you will earn your FREE 2022 HCPL Winter Reading collectors’ mug*! These mugs will be available in early 2022 and we’ll be in touch with you on how to pick yours up.

Following the popularity of 2021’s “Take Out Menu,” this year’s participants are invited to add activities in our “Party all Winter Long” log.

Be sure to log your participation in HCPL’s programs/events, contactless services, Take & Makes, social media, digital materials, and so much more! Check back often as we will be adding new activities throughout the next several months.

Also, again this year, we are encouraging support for our amazing local business community. You can log your activities such as dining out, ordering take out, shopping, visiting entertainment venues, and the like… at businesses located right here in Harford County.

Log any combination of these activities and you’ll be entered to win one of ten HCPL Swag Bags – each will include a signed copy of John Shields’ The New Chesapeake Kitchen cookbook and an autographed “Chesapeake Farm & Bay to Table” apron!

Winners will be randomly selected the week of March 21.

*Available while supplies last.
