Reading Challenge for Adults

Woman reading

We are partnering with the Spooner Memorial Library again this year to bring you another Reading Challenge for Adults.

From November 1, 2019 to May 1, 2020.

Read 10 of the 16 challenge books to enter for the top prize.  For every one of the 16 you read, you can enter the drawing for the additional prizes.  Get all of your slips in by May 1 for the May 4th drawing (you don't need to be present).  Entry slips are at the library.

This year's theme is "Point of View", and there's a great variety of fiction, non-fiction, young adult, and more.

Pick up a form at either location, and fill out your entry slips at the library.
