Oceans of Possibilities

June 23 – August 20

Visit the Library to sign up and get your reading log. You can also download a reading log here.

Then, start reading! Keep track of the time you read and mark it on the reading log. When you’ve filled in all the boxes, you’ve read 10 hours and completed our reading challenge. Fill out the reverse side of your log, bring it back to the library, and you’ll earn a gift card to Cremeria, the Clinton Cider Mill, Utica Bread, or Vit-Za Pizza.

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 3 Results

As of June 21, Clinton County, PA has taken the lead with 405 hours. The KTL is close behind with 395 hours, followed by the 2021 runner-up North County Branch Library in Clinton, NJ with 178.
