To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee
Spring Challenge Reading Competition!

Congratulations to ReadioActive, our terrific public libraries team! We had seven awesome team members this year who did an admirable job at the Spring Challenge Reading Competition held at Easton Area High School on April 9. They read a lot (from a list of 45 books) to prepare for the competition and did a great job answering some very difficult questions! Congratulations also to the other Teen Advisory Board members who competed on their schools' teams--everyone should be proud of the time, effort, and enthusiasm that goes into this event!

The Associated Libraries of Monroe County team is the only team from public libraries. All the other teams are from area high schools. The competition is open to students in grades 9-12. We'll start forming our 2016 team in the fall; come to the Teen Advisory Board meetings for info on how and when to sign up.

Each team needs to be familiar with the books on the reading list--a total of 45 books! Click on the link below to see the 2016 list. The teams compete against each other in quiz show format.
