Young Adult Spring Reading Challenge

The Spring Reading Challenge will run from March 22nd–June 1st! In that time you will have to read a total of 2500 minutes. That would be around 35 minutes a day. You are not limited to the type of reading you do as long as you read something. Which means that you can read a magazine, graphic novel, regular book of prose writing, books of poetry, the back of a cereal box, your history textbook, an instructional book on how to build a birdhouse. You get the idea.

When you have completed the 2500 minutes, turn your minutes log into the Young Adult Librarian and you will be entered into a drawing for a gift card to Barnes & Noble. You may pick up your registration sheet from the YA librarian or you can download and print your own out. Which will be made available via a link on the teen page.
