2022 Reading Challenge

We are all well into the annual Reading Challenge for 2022, crossing off this year's challenges. How are you progressing?

This year, we've created an assortment of challenges that are sure to get you perusing the shelves for something new, unusual, or unique. To help keep track of your progress, you can pick up a bookmark at any of our library locations, or download and print your own.


Below you will find our 24 reading challenges this year. Work your way through the list in whatever order you want, and be as creative as you want!
