Cozy up to Winter Read at the Lisle Library District
The Lisle Library District is offering Winter Read for all ages from Thursday, Dec. 1 to Saturday, Jan. 7.
Kids who read 160 minutes (or 15 minutes a day) will earn a board game, and adults and teens who read and log two books will win an winter hat. Both are offered while supplies last.
"Reading while the snow falls makes life a little cozier. Earning badges and logging books during LLD's Winter Read makes winter a lot more fun!," said library director Tatiana Weinstein.
Programs throughout December embrace the cozy winter theme.
"Brew Better at Home" explores coffee brewing techniques at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
Shauna Sever, cookbook author and TV and radio personality, joins local libraries virtually to share tips and recipes to make the holidays special at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9.
Later in the month, film historian Dr. Annette Bochenek will present "Classic Christmas TV Shows" at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16.
Teens can pick up a craft kit at the library, 777 Front St., to make a snowflake trinket dish and watch the virtual tutorial at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9.
Both adults and teens will enjoy December's take and make kits: a snowy pine cone evergreen craft the week of Dec. 5 and a shadow box snow globe the week of Dec. 19.
All of these online programs require registration at lislelibrary.org.
