Library announces 2020 reading challenge

MARINETTE — The public libraries in Marinette County are challenging adults to read 50 books this year. 

To participate, people may pick up a 2020 Reading Challenge form at a Marinette County Public Library in Coleman-Pound, Crivitz, Goodman, Marinette, Mid-County (Wausaukee), Niagara or Peshtigo. Read a book that fits into one of the categories on the form, and write down the title of the book and the author. People can read books from home, books from the library or a book from a friend.

The categories on the 2020 Reading Challenge form can help people find and read books one might not have considered reading before. Some of the categories include: a book by an author under 30 years old, a book with an antonym in the title, a book of short stories, a mystery, a book that you never finished and a book recommended by a friend.

To help get ideas for books that fall into each category, people may follow the library on Facebook.

People may contact Mariel Carter at the Stephenson Public Library at 715-732-7570 with questions.
