The Newton County Library System wants students to continue reading through the winter holiday and is offering a reading program to encourage children to do so.
Students ages 12 and under are invited to participate in a winter reading program that will continue until Dec. 31.
Participants can stop by any branch of the Newton County Library System to pick up a Winter Reading Log, then read four books and record them in the log.
When completed reading logs are returned to any Newton County branch, participants can register to win a grand prize.
