What’s Your 2017 Reading Resolution?

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!

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.

What’s your 2017 Reading Resolution? Click here to leave a comment and let us know. And 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!

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 readers@ippl.info.

Our Reading Resolution Challenge starts Jan. 1, 2017 and runs through Dec. 31, 2017. The challenge is for adults 18 and older, and participants may join at any time. 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. Audiobooks, graphic novels, and novellas can count toward your goal. However, no children’s books, please.
