2011 Teen Reading Challenge







The 16th Annual Teen Reading Challenge begins this Sunday!  Pick up your reading log today at any 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, show us what you’ve got this year! 

The 2011 program runs from Sunday, January 9th through Saturday, January 29th.  The logs must be turned in by Tuesday, Feb. 1st.  To participate visit your local library and pick up a log.  Just keep track of the number of minutes you read (books, magazines, newspapers, and even books for school!) on the provided log and turn it in when you’re done.  It’s really that easy! 

Oh, and there will also be a party for the teens who read 250 minutes or more.  Yep, if you read 250+ minutes you’ll receive an invitation to the Teen Reading Challenge Party at Davenport’s Eastern Ave. Library on Friday, Feb. 4th from 6-7:30pm.  And you 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.  Read, read, read, read!
