For recommendations, check out our ARC Booklist at any branch or online at piscatawaylibrary.org/readingchallenges.

The rules are simple:

  • During each month, read a book that fits the chosen challenge category. Recommendation lists are available both online and in print at either branch. 
  • After finishing a book, submit an Adult Reading Challenge entry form found at our Information Desks. Only patrons 18+ can fill out contest entries. 
  • Each completed form will enter you into our Monthly Prize Drawing! Read as much as you can -- there's no limit to monthly entries!  
  • If you complete any of our monthly challenges during the year, you are automatically entered into our GRAND PRIZE DRAWING. To win the Grand Prize, just attend at our Adult Reading Challenge End of the Year Celebration! One grand prize entry per patron.  
  • Feel free to ask a Librarian for monthly suggestions!

Read with a purpose. And for prizes. Remember -- we are here to help if you'd like suggestions!
