Newton's 2024 Summer Reading Challenge for Adults

Created on June 20, 2024, 8:15 pm

Last Updated June 21, 2024, 9:45 am

This year the challenge will run from June 24, 2024 – September 9, 2024. Our Librarians are encouraging adults (18+) to read 5 books this summer across 5 different “challenge” categories for a chance to win gift cards to local businesses. Last year we had hundreds of local residents participate, making our second ever Adult Summer Reading Challenge a huge success. How to participate: Read 1 book from each of the 5 categories. We have included suggested titles for each category, but don’t be afraid to branch out and read anything you’d like that fits the category. Complete the challenge card and return it to the Library by September 9 either in person or via email at newtonpublicservices@minlib.net. For the full description and to view the cards, please visit our website at https://newtonfreelibrary.net/services/explore/summer-reading-challenge-for-adults/ Please see "Notes" underneath the Author section for which category the book belongs to. The categories are: 1.) Read a Retelling or Adaptation 2.) Read a Book Under 250 Pages 3.) Read a Book about Humans and the Environment 4.) Read a Book about Books 5.) Share Your Voice! Reader's Choice (read anything you want, but here are some staff recs)
