2017 Reading Challenge

This year our library staff is participating in a reading challenge to read widely and share what we're reading with others. This is the first of many conversation starters in a "Reading Revolution", an effort to champion literacy and make talking about books and reading a priority in our community. Because reading is cool.

The challenge is pretty easy. Pick a book - any book - that fits into one of the categories listed below. Challenge yourself to select titles outside of your reading comfort zone. Explore new genres, authors, and formats.

You can also find the challenge on our website, and I'm keeping my challenge updated with what I've completed below! Feel free to jump in and participate!
