Every year, the Hot Reads for Cold Nights program at the Winona Public Library keeps getting better and better. (Hot Reads for Cold Nights is the adult winter reading program at the Winona Public Library.) This year the Winona Public Library had 242 adult readers participate in the event; we gained 27 new readers from the previous year. Readers also read a combined total of 2,495 books; this is up from 2,200 books last year.
Hot Reads for Cold Nights would not be possible without the help of our local business sponsors. Special thanks to the Friends of the Winona Public Library for purchasing the coffee mugs that every participant received upon their first entry.
Thank you participants for your love of reading! Thank you sponsors for supporting adult literacy!
