A Majestic Way to Herald in the New Year


From Jan. 1 through Feb. 28, Irving Public Library presents Royal Reads, the theme of the 2022 Adult Winter Reading Challenge. This annual program series invites adults to read, win a prize and attend specially-themed events. Plans for this year include February's free King Tut Museum Replicas Exhibit and Tour at South Irving Library, made possible with the Museum of Modern Art and the Cairo Museum. Additional regal engagements include an afternoon tea, trivia night, book discussions and arts activities.

To participate in the reading challenge, adults may pick up a printed log form at any library location or register online at To win a prize of a free book, coaster and stress reliever ball, either read or listen to five books, or donate food items to Irving Cares by delivering them to a public desk at any library location. A list of approved items is here, and five donation items equal one book. The challenge's prize limit is one per person, while supplies last.

For readers interested in librarians’ recommendations, READsquared also features specially-curated book lists. Themes include royalty in real life and fantasy, imperial intrigue, the kingly sport of chess and more.
