Diversify Your Reading Challenge
This school year we are challenging readers of all ages to liven up their reading with diverse books! Why? The more we read about the lives people live in our community, state, country, and world, the stronger our relationships will be with each other and with ourselves. Diverse books can be entry points for important family conversations, AND of course, they’re fun to read!
A new reading challenge will be announced on Facebook and in our Event Calendar at the start of each month. Participants can Submit Titles throughout the month of the challenge. The first ten participants to complete four different challenges will win a $10 gift card to Phoenix Books, and all participants who complete four different challenges will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card.
Need help finding titles to read? Check out the recommendations below.
To check availability click on the catalog button at the top of the site and search by title. To place a hold on a book log into your library account or call the library at 878-6956.
The books displayed will rotate every 15 seconds. So just wait to see more!
