Introducing Winter Reading and Fine Read Down

Winter Reading SnowmanEveryone knows about our popular Summer Reading program. For the first time this year, Durham County Library is adding a Winter Reading program with the opportunity for library patrons to read down their fines.

The program is free, fun and runs from December 1 through April 1. Pick up a reading log at any Durham County Library location or download one below, keep track of your reading and earn a chance to win prizes.

Back by popular demand, Durham County Library is also holding a Winter Fine Read Down. Sign in at any Durham County Library location between December 1 and April 1, read at the library and remove $1.00 of fines for every 10 minutes you read!

The Winter Reading Program is designed for people of all ages. Know a young child who is learning to read or not yet reading on their own? Earn reading time together by reading aloud! Pick out an audiobook and listen as a family or check out a book to read together while you’re waiting for the bus. Winter is a wonderful time to read, spend time at the library and share stories together.
