Adventure Awaits You: 2015 Winter Reading Challenge
The 2015 Adult Reading Challenge is now closed. Check back next winter to see our new selections!
Sailing the high-seas, trekking through dangerous jungles, and discovering hidden treasure — Adventure is all about doing the impossible. Just the thought of it can get your blood pumping! That's why, this year, Mid-Continent Public Library invites you to join the adventure with the Winter Reading Challenge 2015. Read about daring rogues, intrepid scouts, and the men and women who explore and discover — Adventure awaits you!
The Winter Reading Challenge promotes leisure reading by providing rewarding reading experiences and incentives (like the limited-edition 2015 Winter Reading Challenge mug) for those who complete the challenge of reading five books in two months.
