Glen Ellyn Public Library has announced its Winter Reading Program, which serves as a kickoff to the library's 2014 Olympic Games programming.

This year's Winter Reading program titled, “Read for the Gold,” offers adults ages 18 and older the opportunity to earn prizes based on the how early they register and the number of books they read this winter.

The program kicked off Monday, Jan. 20. The first 100 people who register for Winter Reading: Read for the Gold will be eligible to receive a free GEPL stainless steel sports bottle upon sign up. Sports bottles will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

Winter Reading participants also will receive one raffle ticket for every five books read between Jan. 20 and Feb. 24, and they will be entered in the grand prize drawing for a golden colored iPod.

Programs associated with the Winter Reading Program include:

Registration is underway. Visit gepl.org/winter or, for a free sports bottle, sign up in person at the second-floor information desk.
