WELCOME TO THE 2021 ARLY CHALLENGE!
At Ashe County Public Library, we are committed to helping kids discover their love of reading. The Arly edition of the 2021 Ashe County Reading Challenge rewards kids from birth to 12 and their families and encourages reading widely throughout the year.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The reading challenge runs from January 1 to December 31. Read a book and submit a review to complete a category. Books may only count toward one category in the challenge.
Reviews can simple or as complex as you want. "I thought the main character was funny!" is a great review.
Any books read can count, including ebooks, graphic novels, and audiobooks. Plus, books read for the reading challenge can count toward our other reading challenges during summer and winter break to earn even more free books/prizes!
For each book read and reviewed, readers will get an entry for the grand prize drawing at the Reading Challenge Wrap-Up/Kickoff Celebration in January of 2022. For every five books read and reviewed in the challenge, kids will receive a free book or prize. Kids who have completed the challenge will get double entries (a total of 50) for the grand prize drawing. To complete the reading challenge, reviews must be submitted and approved for each category.
Submit reviews online through the Submit Your Reviews tab or get a review sheet from the children's desk at the library. Fill it out & return to a staff member.
