When the days get long, and the weather gets warm, it signifies one thing only: Summer Reading Challenge time!
This is the Westport Library's sixth year offering the Summer Reading Challenge. If you have participated in the past, welcome back-- the rules are all the same. If this is your first time joining us, were thrilled to have you! We've got another 25 great categories for you. You can do all of them or only one, or anything in between, just as long as you have fun reading!
The rules are simple and there are only two:
- Categories may only be fulfilled once,
- Each book can only be used for one category.
Once you have read a book that fulfills a category, you can submit it via the form on our website and keep track of your progress on our leaderboard.
The leaderboard is an awesome place to see what everyone else is reading, and give recommentions to our community of readers. You can also join our Westport Reading Challenge Facebook Group and talk books all summer long.
Why should you join the challenge?
Because, according to our past participants, it is AWESOME!
