Take part in the Winter Reading Challenge

Sign-up online and read or listen to any four books by Saturday 27 February. This can include books you read or listen to together, bedtime stories, non-fiction books, ebooks and audiobooks.

Sign up to the Winter Reading Challenge

Every time you finish reading a book, fill in your personal Winter Reading Challenge reading record. Tell us how many books you’ve read, what the books are called and who they are by. If you want, you can let us know how much you like them too.


Your Winter Reading Challenge reading record 

You’ll automatically be sent a completer’s certificate when you’ve reached a total of four books in your Winter Reading Challenge reading record. We’ll send you emails along the way, every time you add a new book to your record.



You’ll find thousands of children’s ebooks and audiobooks free to download using our BorrowBox service with lots of titles always available without a wait. You’ll find links to some of our recommendations on this webpage and information about downloading ebooks and audiobooks.

You can also use our new Ready Reads: We Select You Collect service to borrow books. Library staff will regularly handpick a selection of books for you to collect from the entrance of your local library. You can choose how often and how many books you’d like.

If you’re not already a member of Hampshire Libraries, you can join to take part. There’s a special video to show you how to join.

This year’s Winter Reading Challenge is all about getting cosy together to share the love of reading.

We welcome donations to help support our library activities.
