Clinton Reading Challenge
Calling all readers age 12 and up! Help us reclaim victory in the Clinton Reading Challenge this summer! This year, we’ll be competing against our friends in Clinton, New Jersey, and Clinton County, Pennsylvania to see which library can read the most before Labor Day.
All you have to do is keep track of how long you spend reading each week. Download a Clinton Challenge Reading Log, grab a paper copy from inside the KTL, or use your own method.
Every Friday from June 2 through September 4, let us know how long you’ve read during the week. You can enter your total online, email it to email@example.com, or snip this week from your reading log and drop it off. We’ll tally the minutes and see how we stack up against the competition. Every week that you submit hours, you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a fun prize at the end of the summer.
Last year we lost to New Jersey by just one hour and Pennsylvania seems determined to beat us both this year. Let’s bring the trophy back home to New York, where the competition began!
Clinton Challenge Reading Rally
Thursday, June 22 from 6-8 p.m.
Stop by the deck anytime during the evening to read quietly together and log some hours for the Clinton Challenge. Bring your own book or choose one when you get here. If you’re not tracking your time yet, we’ll show you how to get started and you can include this time on your log. Our friends at The Waterville Times will provide snacks and there will be raffles for some reading-related prizes. All ages are welcome to join us at this event but the Clinton Challenge is for readers ages 12 and up.
