Are you up for the Dover Library Reading Challenge in 2016?
The Reading Challenges for Adults (48 of them!) are listed on a calendar which is available at our Library,
and we have 34 Reading Challenges for Kids and Teens listed on a bookmark that is available at our Library and the School Libraries.
Read whatever you can just for Fun!
Read for an Amazon Kindle!
Take your reading a step further and write down the title of each book you read for each challenge.
Bring your final list to the Library between December 1, 2016 and December 17, 2016.
For every 5 books you read and write down, you will get an entry into our end of the year drawing on December 20, 2016 for an Amazon Kindle.
We have TWO Kindles to give away – one for the Adult readers and one for Kids/Teens.
There might be some other prizes too, you never know.
So start the reading challenge today, get some paper to write down the titles, and maybe you can end 2016 with a new Kindle!
You can now download e-magazines for free with your library card! Read them on your Kindle, ipad, computer – whatever device you have, wherever you want to read. Just click on the Zinio box on the right side of our page then click create an account. You’ll have magazines to read in minutes.
The staff and Board of Trustees cannot possibly thank you enough for your support and for believing in your Library for your community. We will continue to provide the hours, services and programs you expect and will be working continually on making that even better.
