The library wants to challenge you and your reading!

Throughout the year we’ll post a new area for you to read from. When you read a book that meets the criteria, add a comment to the post. If you can’t wait to see what categories we’ll post, drop by the library to pick up the entire list and to add your books to our bulletin board.

The first challenge: Read a book written by an author who was under 25 or over 65 years of age when they wrote the book.  Add your reads to our bulletin board or to the post on Facebook.
