Library Reading Challenge

What is a reading challenge?

A reading challenge encourages you to read (or listen) outside your comfort zone. Try a new author, a new genre or a new format.

Who can participate?

Anyone over the age of 16. To be eligible to win the prize draw, you must have a Lincoln Public Library card. Need a card? Sign up here.

What counts?

Print books, eBooks, audiobooks, YA, graphic novels, short story collections, you name it! Magazines and children’s books do not count.

Do the books have to be library books?

Not at all. Check out library booksdownload eBooks, borrow from friends, shop at a local bookstore or visit your bookshelf at home.

Help! I don’t know what to read!

We’re here to help! Each month the library will share recommended reads for each theme. Remember to be creative when choosing your books.
