The Challenge Is On…

Chill Out & ReadThe 14th Annual Teen Reading Challenge has begun!  Pick up your reading log today at either Davenport Public Library location.  The Teen Reading Challenge is an event sponsored by the Quad City Area Public Libraries.  This unique winter reading program asks teens to join their home library team and “compete” against other area public libraries to see who can read the most.  Come on DPL teens…let’s do this!

Oh, and did I mention a party?  Party.  Teens who read 250 minutes or more will be invited to the Teen Reading Challenge Party at the Moline Public Library on Friday, Jan. 9th.  And they get to bring a friend, as well!  There will be video games to play, scrapbooking activities, duct tape crafts, free food, drinks, and lots of prizes to give away.

One more thing…if the DPL teens win this Challenge, they get to have an overnight lock-in at the library.  Time to get your read on!
