Winter Reading Challenge
Jan. 1 – 31, 2023 – Beat the cold weather by curling up with a good read! All ages are encouraged to participate in our Winter Reading Challenge, which runs January 1-31, 2023. Everyone who reads 240 minutes will receive a small prize (while supplies last). As an added challenge, our goal is for participants to read a combined total of 115,382 minutes – one minute for each resident of Carlsbad. You can register for the challenge and log your minutes via Beanstack. We hope you will take part in the Winter Reading Challenge and help us reach our goal!

Safer Streets Together
On Aug. 23, the City of Carlsbad declared a local state of emergency for traffic safety following a significant increase in collisions involving bikes and e-bikes. The city is taking a balanced approach focused on education, infrastructure and enforcement while asking the community to also do their part for traffic safety.
- Eliminate distractions
- Slow down and watch your speed
- Obey all traffic lights and signals
- Know the bike and e-bike rules of the road
- Use crosswalks when available as a pedestrian
- Be kind and patient
We are all part of the Carlsbad community, and working together, we can make our streets safer for everyone. Visit carlsbadca.gov/saferstreets for more resources on improving traffic safety.
