For the month of January MPL will participate in the inaugural nationwide Winter Reading Challenge. We challenge our patrons to read as much as possible during the month, and register to log their minutes and/or books read, to reach our goal of 600 books and 2,500 minutes read!
Over 100 libraries across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. If the nationwide goal is met, “Shark Tank” investor Mark Cuban will donate $25,000 to the organization “First Book,” which provides new books, learning materials, and other essentials to children in need.
The top five libraries who reach their goal will also be entered into a drawing for $10,000!
The challenge is open to all ages. Those interested can pre-register at montclairpubliclibrary.beanstack.org today, and may start logging books/minutes on January 1. For more information or assistance in registering for the challenge, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 973-744-0500 ext. 2235.
