2020 TPL Adult Winter Reading Challenge

Are You Up to the Challenge?

2020 Adult Winter Reading Challenge at Tredyffrin Township Libraries

January 1st – February 29th

Beat those winter blues by challenging yourself to read 10 books this winter! From January 1st to February 29th, every book you read counts as a raffle towards our grand prize– a $50 gift card to Main Point Books! You have a chance to earn 10 raffles for the grand prize. If you don’t finish all 10 challenges, don’t worry, you can still submit at least 1 raffle!

Don’t forget to pick up your Challenge Bookmark at the TPL Reference Desk or at Paoli Library’s Circulation Desk and drop off the completed book mark before or on February 29th! The winner will be chosen during the 1st week of March.

Want more than 10 chances to win? Earn another entry when you:

  • Share a picture via social media with the hashtag #TPLWinterChallenge20, and tag our Instagrams — @TredyLibrary and @PaoliLibrary ! (Make sure you show your social media share to a member of the Staff when you drop off your bookmark!)
  • Submit a review!
  • What should you review? It’s up to you! We love to hear about what you’ve enjoyed reading, watching, playing, and listening to. All reviews should be of items that are available through CCLS. Reviews of fewer than 250 words will not be accepted for raffle tickets.

Please note: you must be 18 or older to participate. Only one prize per person.

Challenge Me:

1: Read a book of your choice (that’s right, complete any book for a chance at the prize).

2: Read a book that takes place in Pennsylvania (earn a bonus raffle ticket if the book takes place in Chester County).

3: Read a YA (Young Adult) Book; maybe Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith, the first selection for the new Adults Read YA book club!

4: Read a book in a genre you don’t typically read (if that’s YA, you’ll need to read 2).

5: Read a book that was adapted into a film.

6: Read a book recommended by a librarian.

7: Read a book with a number in the title.

8: Read a “banned” book (ALA has a whole list of them).

9: Read a book written by an author of color.

10: Read a book originally written in a language other than English.
