Chapter 139:24 (b)
Chanukah

24(b). If an error was made [on "Rosh Chodesh Teves" ("first day of the month of Teves")], and the portion for Chanukah was read [before the portion of "Rosh Chodesh"], even if the person called up has completed the blessing (1), but the reader hasn't started reading from the Torah, there is no need to interrupt; rather, the reader completes the [portion of Chanukah] and then the remaining [three] people are called up for the portion of "Rosh Chodesh."

If the portion of "Rosh Chodesh" was read [from the first Torah Scroll] in the correct manner, but [instead of the fourth person being called up for the portion of Chanukah], an error was made and the fourth person was called up for the "Rosh Chodesh" reading. If only one Torah Scroll had been removed from the ark, there is no need to [call up another person to read from the Chanukah portion]; this is true even though the error was realized immediately after the one called up for the reading had completed the blessing (that is, before the actual reading began). However, if two Torah Scrolls had been removed from the ark, there is a concern that [if we don't read from the second scroll, people will think] that it is defective ("pasul"). To avoid this, a fifth person must be called up for the reading of the Chanukah portion [from the second scroll], followed by the "half-Kaddish."
