winter reading challenge announcement

Winter Reading Challenge Jan 3 - March 20

This winter, Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) and the Washington Wizards challenge you to read! The Wizards have teamed up with MCPL to invite your family to stay active and engaged with the Washington Wizards Winter Reading Challenge.

School-aged children and teens can sign up and earn badges that encourage reading for pleasure, joining interactive events, sharing and connecting with the library community, and finding fun ways to be physically active.

Those who finish the program by earning the Reading badge and at least two other badges will receive a prize, available at your local library while supplies last. Lucky raffle winners will receive 2 tickets to the April 12, 2024 Wizards game.

This challenge is a great way to find healthy habits that your family will love and can add to your routine all year round.

Participating is easy:

  • Sign up (or log in) online. Preregistration begins December 12.
  • (Optional) Print a Washington Wizards Winter Reading Challenge game board ( English (PDF) or Spanish (PDF) ) at home or pick one up at your local library.
  • Earn the Reading badge and at least 2 other badges from January 3 - March 20 to complete the Challenge.
  • Visit your local branch to pick up your prize while supplies last.
