Welcome to the 2023 Reading Challenge! We have had so much fun reading through your reviews from last year's challenge and we cannot wait to get started this year.  As always, books may only be used to satisfy one single challenge. We try to keep a good mix between the general (so you can include many of the books you would have read anyway) and the specific (so you can read some books you might never have chosen otherwise). Our library sponsors this challenge for two very important reasons: to promote literacy in our community and to have fun doing it. We hope you are ready for some reading adventures! If you have an idea for a challenge category, please let us know! Email ashereference@arlibrary.org with the subject line: Reading Challenge Idea.
