The Lisle Library District, 777 Front St., is holding its annual Winter Read Kick-Off Party from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3.

The all-ages event celebrates the start of the Winter Read Program, which starts on Dec. 3 and concludes on Jan. 7.

 

A reindeer petting zoo accompanies hot chocolate from Churros y Chocolate and a fake snow pit.

Inside, attendees can grab a take-home craft kit, explore the winter and holiday collection and signup for the Winter Read Program.

The Winter Read Program is open to children, teens and adults.

Children will complete a reading challenge to earn a snowperson accessories kit and teens and adults will read two books to win a wintry travel mug.
