CPL’s 2021 Winter Reading Challenge

It’s the New Year, which is usually a time when we set those dreaded New Year’s Resolutions.  You know the ones that I mean – the ones we set because we think we should; the ones we set so that we don’t feel bad about ourselves.  I used to do that too, until I read this piece by author Lisa Scottoline, in which she talks about “Unresolutions”.  In other words, think about all of the things that you like about yourself, all of the things that you enjoy – and then resolve to keep doing them in the New Year!  It’s easy AND you can stop feeling bad about yourself!

We on the Readers Advisory team have made the Unresolution to Keep Reading!  With the added challenge of reading books that will broaden our literary horizons.

To make it even more fun, we are inviting you to join us in this Unresolution by participating in CPL’s Winter Reading Challenge Bingo.  You only need one BINGO to be entered into the prize drawing, but we encourage you to stretch yourself to read in as many different categories as you can. Simply print the card (front and back) from home, or stop by the library or curb-side to pick up a printed card.

Need help choosing what to read next? We’ve created lists for many of the categories, which you can find in the library or online.

Complete your card and return it to the library by March 7, 2021 for a chance to win some great prizes.

It’s a New Year – let’s read bigger, together!
