    The club is primarily intended for adults aged 18 and up. You must be 18 years old to be eligible for the grand prize.

    When can I register? 

    Registration begins January 2, 2013.

    How do I register?

    You can fill out the online registration form or complete and return a paper form to any DCLS Library location.

    Can I use the same user name and password that I did for the Summer Reading Program?

    The Library is using a different system this year to handle Winter Reading Club registrations and the book review forum. Therefore, you will need to re-register for this year's club. In order to be registered for the club, you must fill out the registration form. To register for the book review forum, you must additionally register on the DCLS website. To do that, click the "login" button in the header area of this website (to the right of the DCLS logo and above the eight section buttons towards the top of the page). Complete the registration form and you will gain access to the book review forums and additional DCLS online content. Asterisks will indicate what is required.

    What if I forget my user name and password?

    Call or visit any DCLS library.  Staff will be able to register you. Or, you can follow the on-screen prompts after the login button to retrieve a lost password.

    How many books do I need to read?

    Earn a prize by reading, watching, or listening to eight DCLS library items.  Books, DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, audiobooks on CD or MP3, downloadable books, downloadable audiobooks, and periodicals can be included on your log.

    How do I fill in the log?

    Reading logs will be handled in paper format only. You can download a printable reading log on this website or pick up a copy at your local Library location. Reading logs will need to be returned to a library in order for you to be eligible for prizes.

    Can I use a paper log?

    You may print a paper log from the Winter Reading Club webpage or ask a DLCS staff member to print one for you.  Fill in the registration information and record the items you read, watch or listen to on the log.  Turn in your log at any DCLS library during the prize redemption period.

    How soon may I get my prize?

    Prizes will be awarded between March 18, 2013 and April 12, 2013.
