Clinton Challenge

happening now

Readers are invited to join us as we challenge patrons of the North County Branch Library in Clinton, New Jersey, and the Clinton County Libraries in Pennsylvania to see who can read the most this summer!

All you have to do is keep track of how long you spend reading each week. Download a reading log, grab a paper copy from inside the KTL, or use your own method.

Every Friday from June 3 through September 2, let us know how long you’ve read during the week. You can email your total to clinton@midyork.org, snip this week from your reading log and drop it off, or fill out this handy online form. We’ll tally the minutes and see how we stack up against the competition.

Everyone who reports their time will be entered in a raffle to win fun prizes at the end of the summer.

For readers ages 12 and up.

Let’s show everyone that Clinton, New York loves to read!

Week 4 Results (Posted June 27)

It’s getting hot outside and so is the competition! Clinton County, PA, and the Kirkland Town Library are practically neck and neck while Clinton, NJ is looking to rally and leave us both in the dust.
