Reading Challenge

Adult Reading Challenge 2021

We are revamping the reading challenge this year! Instead of a complete item list to work on the whole year, we are reading through 2021 with monthly themes! We will have twelve themes throughout the year. The next month's theme will be rolled out the week before the month begins. Look out for awesome monthly prizes including museum passes, gift cards, and more!

There will be a display of books for that theme and you can check those out off the shelf or start finding other books to fulfill the theme. Each month, submit entries in the box for that month's theme to be eligible for the prize. The real challenge is reading a theme every month, but within each month, you can submit as many entries as you'd like. You can also try to read more in a month for a prize you're especially excited about!

We look forward to your participation and wish you a wonderful year of reading!
