15th Annual Teen Reading Challenge

January 11, 2010

Chill Out & ReadThe 15th 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!

penguins readingThis year’s program runs from Jan 10, 2010-Jan. 30, 2010.  The logs must be turned in by Feb. 2, 2010.  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 did I mention a party?  Party.  Teens who read 250 minutes or more will be invited to the Teen Reading Challenge Party at the Bettendorf Public Library on Friday, the 5th.  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!
