Reading Challenge: How to Get Halfway There


When it's cold and gloomy outside, staying at home with a book and a cup of hot cocoa is a happy place. Want to join our Reading Challenge for a chance to win a prize? Not sure what to read for some of the categories? We're here to help!

Although you can't browse at your local library right now, you can still place books on hold and pick them up. No appointment necessary! It's easy to find books for some of the challenge categories by browsing online. Check out the Books section here on TPL Kids or our huge ebook collection on OverDrive.

That's three categories already!

And just like that, you can complete six categories. Six to go before you complete the challenge! Think you can do it? To quote one of the jokes submitted on TPL Kids: What advice do you get from a librarian? Believe in your shelf!
