A six week Winter Reading Challenge for teens and adults will be underway at the Community District Library branches beginning January 17th. Participants may sign up and record reading online through Beanstack or they may visit their local branch to receive a paper reading log HERE.
Each patron who begins the reading challenge is invited to pick up a gently used book at the library to get their reading started. A free Biggby coffee/drink coupon will be earned after the first book is completed. Every book that is read through February 28th will enter the reader in a drawing for a $25 gift card. One winner will be chosen at each CDL branch location.
