2016 Reading Challenge

Are you participating in our adult reading challenge this year? We have punch cards with 52 challenges on them (read a political memoir, a trilogy, a book with less than 100 pages, etc.). For each challenge you complete you receive one raffle ticket. We’ve drawn two winners so far this year, with two more winners to come!

Struggling to find a book to meet some of the challenges? We have a great display on the table in the front room right now with books that meet some of the challenges! Check it out next time your in. Also feel free to ask one of the library staff members for a recommendation!

If you’ve finished your first punch card (because we know how voraciously some of you read!) you can grab a second card and start again! readingchallengeflyer
