2017 Reading Challenge

Want to read more this year? In a genre or author rut? Join us for monthly Reading Challenge themes! Complete 3 out of 4 tasks in each mini-challenge to be entered into the drawings. How to enter: Tag us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with an image of the books you’ve read or your completed reading list, or ask a librarian to take your photo. Don’t use social media? Emailed or handwritten lists also welcome!

To enter the grand prize drawing on December 18, read at least 8 of the 12 monthly tasks. And of course, eBooks and audiobooks count! *Prizes made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Athens Public Library.
