Winterfest Reading Club is here!

The El Paso Public Library kicked off the Winterfest Reading Club last weekend to coincide with the Winterfest taking place in Downtown El Paso.

The Winterfest Reading Club is for all ages. Come by the Dorris Van Doren information desk to pick up a registration card/reading log or register online. Read 5 or more books between now and January 6th for a chance to win Winterfest skate passes.

We also have a variety of activities this winter to get everyone into the holiday spirit!

We will have a series of storytimes dedicated to teaching children about some of the major holidays celebrated in December.
