Winter Reads 2021 Themes:

Reflect & Restart

Reflect on the past year and make aspirations for the new year. Read from our book list that outlines authors that encourage mindfulness and balance in your life. Follow along with our virtual events and programs to learn about creating your own comfort. We've also included a section on perspectives and experiences inspired by BeanStack and Simon & Schuster's "Books Like Us" campaign that celebrates inclusion and understanding by seeing ourselves in another person's story.

Celebrate Winter

Winter here is often cold and snowy. It can be isolating, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Everything retreats inward, the plants, the animals, and even us. We can still find light, hope, warmth, and joy by seeking beauty and comfort in the present. Your Caseyville librarians have compiled a list of books with cold, snowy scenes and cozy, winter moods along with activities and events you can participate in that will help you celebrate winter.

We hope everyone joins us in this challenge. Explore our website and BeanStack and give us a call at 618-632-5848 if you have any questions.
