"This sounds fun! What kind of prizes or coupons did you give out? We are a very small library with an even smaller budget, so if we did something like this, it would have to be low cost."

Winter Reading Challenge

At our church we're doing a Reading Challenge for adults - we're handing out bookmarks with sixteen categories of books, and participants have from Jan. 31-March 6 to read as many as they can (or want to! it's supposed to be fun, not pressure).

Here are our 16 categories...
