Once again, it’s time for the Adult Winter Read at the Shelby County Public Library! Hardees of Shelbyville has sponsored the Adult Winter Read program again for 2022. We extend the heartfelt thanks of the Library and all who participate in the Adult Winter Read to the staff, management, and owner of Hardees.


To register for the Adult Winter Read 2022 stop by the Library’s main circulation desk.  For the first two books read, you receive a Shelby County Public Library mug. Then for every two books you read, you earn a ticket for a chance to win one of the FIVE GRAND PRIZE gift baskets!


This year there are five great prizes up for grabs. In addition to reading books, you can complete activities and quizzes for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. For more information on how to win the prizes, visit the Frequently Asked Questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up?

It’s easy! On or after January 11, come into the Library to register.  While you’re at it, check our catalog and reserve a few books to get a head start on your reading list.

Do audiobooks count?

Of course! If it’s on the main floor, except for movies and periodicals, it is fair game for your reading log. Fiction, non-fiction, large-print fiction, audio books, you name it. Inter-library loans count, too! Basically, almost everything.

How do I win a grand prize gift basket?

For every two books or audiobooks logged, you will receive a grand prize ticket to enter for the basket of your choice. The more books you log, the more entries you receive for prizes.

Is there a minimum number of books I have to read?

No. You can sign up, read three or four books, and then call it a day. There aren’t any requirements other than a library card. To be entered to win a prize, though, you must read and log at least two books.

When is the last day to enter the drawing?

The Adult Winter Read is from January 11 to March 11, 2022. You can sign up or enter the drawing at any point between those dates. Books read before January 11, 2022, and after March 11, 2022, do not count towards the program.
