Winter Reading Challenge
January 1, 2024 - February 29, 2024
Yes indeed- we believe that Reading Takes You Everywhere. And we were so successful as a community logging our reading this summer that we thought we would toss out a winter challenge for all those looking to start the new year Reading. Once again we will be using Readsquared to log our minutes. If you have registered before you should be able to easily access your account and get to logging. This Winter Reading Challenge is for all ages. And if you are not able to log online we will gladly take your time here in the library.
