The Fargo Public Library invites the community to participate in the library's annual Winter Read-A-Thon. Readers of every age can participate; book logs are available for children, teens and adults.

The program, which kicked off Jan. 3, requires registration through an online service called Beanstack. All participants must register at , which will then track the days and time spent reading.

Participants can pick up a paper book log at any Fargo Public Library location though online registration is still required.

All ages are encouraged to read to earn small prizes while they last, and chances to enter prize drawings. Book logs are due on or before Feb. 26 to be eligible for prizes and prize drawings.
