Challenge Reading Competition!
to Readioactive, our terrific public libraries
team! We only had six team members this year, but they held their own against larger teams and did a fantastic job
at the Spring Challenge Reading Competition held at
Easton Area High School on April 29. Our team members came from Barrett Paradise Friendly, Clymer, &
Eastern Monroe Public Libraries.
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!
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 2015 team in the
fall; come to the Teen Advisory Board meetings for info on how and when to sign
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 2015 list. The teams compete against
each other in quiz show format.
