What is hot to read?

“Means to read” is a campaign by the administrative districts of Baden-Württemberg. Children and young people from primary school to young people must be inspired and encouraged to read.

From Monday 11 July to Saturday 24 September, the campaign will be held for the eighth time in the Tübingen administrative district, which includes the local counties.

“Hot to read” is in the starting blocks

Children and young people can borrow exciting, funny, scary, romantic or even adventurous stories from numerous books in their library. They will also be rewarded with a certificate and prizes for reading

How to participate

Children and young people can register as club members free of charge at participating libraries. Registration cards for “Hot to Read” are available at schools and libraries before the summer holidays. After registration, each participant receives a logbook. This accompanies children and young people through the campaign.

With the logbook as the club ID, all books marked with the “Hot to read” logo can be borrowed at the participating libraries. When returning the books, club members fill out one of the evaluation cards in the logbook and discuss the book with one on the library team.

Then a lottery ticket is thrown into the lottery wheel so that the first book read has the chance to win a prize in the lottery at a closing party at the library.

The aim of the campaign is for children and young people to enjoy reading and talking about it.
