Great American Reading Challenge
Now through September 7th

This summer along with PBS’s new multi-platform series The Great American Read, we're reading as many of the America’s 100 best-loved novels as possible. Go through the list, mark off any you have previously read, no matter how long ago you read them. For every 10 books you read that you haven't previously read, you will get one entry into a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. Additionally, the person who finishes the most (including the books they have previously read) will win a $50 Amazon gift card. The same person cannot win both gift cards, and in the event of a tie for the most books read, we will randomly draw between the tied people for the award. The contest runs June 1st through September 7th, with winners announced on September 10th. Contact Judi for more info: (307) 367-4114 or email jboyce@sublettecountylibrary.org.
