Prize winners in 2017 Robey Memorial Library Reading Challenge ...

Robey Memorial Library patrons were invited to “Build a Better World” and read something new last year, with the library's 2017 Reading Challenge ending December 31. Participating patrons entered monthly drawings after reading from one of 12 pre-selected categories: how to, teaches you something; “tall” tale, legend or 500+ pages; set in the future; travel or adventure; short story; someone you admire; bestseller; with a structure or building on the cover; religious, spiritual or inspirational; with a place in the title; published in the decade you were born; or picked from a random library shelf.

Throughout the year, participants read 182 books for the challenge with up to 12 entries in any combination of four prizes.
