Winter Reading Challenge

In Norway there is a word, 'koselig', which means a sense of cosiness.

We are embracing the concept of koselig in our libraries this winter and inviting you to join our winter reading challenge.

There are 3 categories to cover all ages, so all the readers in the family can participate.

The competition starts now and concludes on the first day of spring (September 1st)

Register now online or at your local library.

Once you have completed the challege you can enter the draw to win a great prize.

Embrace koselig this winter and discover some great new reads brought to you by the Onkaparinga Libraries.
