Join us for the 2017 Reading Challenge! This year we're challenging you to read award-winning writing!
Challenge yourself with the following list. Do as many or as few as you want. Read other things that you like!
Fill out a slip for each book you read whenever you come to the Library OR use our web form.
P.S. You can always ask a librarian (in person, on the phone or via email) for help to find titles for any of these categories. We looooove to help!
Below are reading challenges you can undertake. Links to websites for the awards follow the challenge.
Have fun and don’t forget to join our conversation on Facebook (“TPL Reading Challenge Group”)!
Twelve prizes will be awarded this year—one each month. Be sure to register with us and turn in your reading slips (located at the Library’s Front Desk or via the form above) to enter!
