Winter Reading Challenge

Burn through books and build your team’s icy tower to victory.


The Library’s perennially popular reading challenge returns for another session of wintry reads and page-turning competition.

Perfect for those just learning to read (in English or Japanese) and well-read bookworms alike, this month-long read-a-thon starts with you picking your team, checking out your favorite titles and diving into the funny, thrilling and gripping stories within.

After filling out your progress card and submitting it to a friendly librarian, get your icy block and add it to your team’s growing tower.

The team with the most blocks by the end of the competition wins!
