Interested in reading new things this year?
Join other readers in Challenge Your Shelf, a reading challenge to help diversify, expand, and introduce new genres to your reading habits. Read 25 books by December 31st by following our prompts and turn in your log to win a prize!
Stop by the Adult Services desk starting January 1st to sign up and get a list of the prompts and a reading log to record your books or check our website to get started.
How it works:
Read one book for 25 of the 30 prompts and earn a prize. You should have 5 prompts leftover. Use the reading log to record the titles and authors of the books you’ve read. Turn in your log at the Adult Services desk by the end of the year to earn a prize.
