Many people kick off each new year with a resolution to change a behavior or improve themselves in some way. This year, we’re encouraging our community to make a Reading Resolution!

What are the requirements? 

Our Reading Resolution Challenge is for adults 18 and older. The challenge started Jan. 1, 2017 and runs through Dec. 31, 2017. However, participants may start their challenge at any time

Book lovers may challenge themselves to read a book a week. Those with less time may set a goal to get through a book a month. Others may want to read the books that inspired this year’s blockbuster movies or revisit the classics they read in school. Audiobooks, graphic novels, and novellas can count toward your goal.

What do I get if I meet my goal? 

As an incentive, those who meet their Reading Resolution goals will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card to their favorite bookstore. To be entered into the drawing, simply set a reading goal, meet it, and turn in your reading log to the library. Logs can be submitted in person to the Ask Us Desk on the first floor, or via email sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Reading logs must be turned in by 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018 to be eligible for the drawing, which will take place on Monday, Jan. 8, 2018. 

Is there a way to get reading suggestions and inspiration? 

Be sure to sign up for our weekly eNews and other bookish enewsletters. We’ll be providing book lists, staff reviews, and personalized suggestions, plus reading resources and challenges, to help you meet your goal!
