Library Challenge

Library Challenge 2016


We hope you’ll join as as we take the Library Challenge in 2016.  You can click on the “Library Challenge” poster to see the categories.  You will need to read 49 books during the year (One from each category–the trilogy counts for three books)  to complete the challenge and be posted on the Scroll of Honor in the library.  Everybody who completes the challenge will be eligible for a prize drawing — although we haven’t determined what that prize is yet!

Since the poster may be a little difficult to read, we’ve typed out the categories below.  We have also made up book lists for many of the categories to help you choose your books.
