The Warm Winter Read is here!

Wednesday 1 June – Sunday 31 July

Grab your book, blanket and beanie – we’re hibernating with books this winter! Join the Warm Winter Read and find time every day to cosy up with a book. Create healthy reading habits by tracking your progress online via Beanstack or by collecting a paper tracker from your nearest library branch. 

It doesn’t matter what, where, or how you read! Start a book from your TBR pile, finish that book you put down months ago, or find something new while browsing the library shelves - the Warm Winter Read is waiting for you.

The challenge is simple. All you need to do is log each day that you spend time reading between Wednesday 1 June and Sunday 31 July.

To get started, download the Beanstack mobile app or head to the Beanstack website and log in or create a free account. Then select the 'Warm Winter Read' challenge to register. Come back each day to log your reading progress.

If you cannot access Beanstack, you can pick up a paper copy of the challenge from your local library. Visit us in branch for more information.

Join the conversation online by sharing your progress using #WarmWinterRead and tagging us @CityOfMeltonLibraries.

Happy reading!


We are open!

As of Saturday 23 April 2022, proof of vaccination is no longer required to enter the library. We are so excited to welcome back all of our valued library members to enjoy our full range of services. 

Your health and safety is still our first priority. We will continue doing what we can to ensure that our facilities remain COVID-safe, including regular cleaning of frequently used equipment and spaces. 

We encourage all visitors to continue to socially distance, and to make use of the hand sanitiser and surface cleaning materials available in our branches. While face masks are no longer required in the library, you may continue to wear one if you wish. And of course, we ask that you do not visit the library if you are feeling unwell. 

We understand that some people may not feel ready to return to the library just yet. Our free Home Delivery service will continue for those who do not wish to visit the library in person. You may also like to place holds on library items ahead of time to make your visit as quick and easy as possible. 

Thank you to all of our customers who remain supportive and respectful of our dedicated staff during these challenging times.
