Summer isn’t the only time for reading campaigns, especially here at the EPL! We are presently celebrating two great reading challenges, and we hope that you will want to join in the fun.
The first is Book Riot’s annual
Read Harder Challenge
. Each year Book Riot provides readers with 24 reading prompts that force us to read outside our “bubbles.” We all have a favorite series, author, or genre that we turn to at every checkout, so having these reading prompts makes reading selections more intentional.
Back for its sixth year, the
2020 Read Harder Challenge
will continue through December and requires no extra reporting, unless you want to share your reading experiences with us! Curious? Stop by the Library often to see our book displays highlighting some of our favorite titles, and don’t forget to pick-up your
2020 Read Harder
list of prompts.
The second reading challenge is Youth Services’
March Book Madness,
a bracket-style competition between 16 picture books that feature the theme of “Brave and Bold.” Each week you will vote for your favorites until we have one tournament champion! At the end of March, we will celebrate the books and our reading efforts with an old fashioned ice cream social. To participate, you must register with a Youth Services team member.
Readers of all ages are welcome and encouraged to join one or both of these reading challenges.
