MM for Facebook

Join us for our first official online reading challenge! Beginning February 1, 2019, our goal is to read books movies have been based on and see how many "movie watching minutes" we can log. (For example, reading the book The Martian by Andy Weir will earn 144 movie watching minutes.) Books may be fiction or non-fiction, youth or adult—audiobooks count as well. Television series do not count for this challenge. This challenge is for ages 16 & up. Books must be read during the challenge period - not before. The challenge ends on April 30, 2019.

To participate, read books that movies were based on and submit the titles through the email submission form. Library staff will search movie run times and calculate our total "movie watching" time throughout the challenge. Total minutes will be periodically posted on the library's Goodreads account and on the library's Facebook page.

Participating patrons will be entered into a prize drawing at the completion of the challenge. For more information, read our challenge handout or talk to a library staff member.
