Read Learn Grow Reading Challenge
Thursday, October 1, 2020 - 9:00am to Thursday, December 31, 2020 - 8:00pm

Register HERE for our Fall Reading Challenge! Over the past several months our community, our state, our country and our world has faced multiple challenges.  The results of these challenges either builds our commitment to one another or divides us. Waupaca Readers were able to work together to meet a common goal of 5,000 books.  Now it’s time for a new challenge.  One that asks us to read and learn to better understand our world.  For when we know better, we do better, and are better …. And our neighborhoods will be better, too. 

Building Community is a goal of our library.  This goal was born out of many community discussions during our strategic planning process.  We challenge you to continue this conversation with your friends, family and neighbors.  It's a simple three step process: 1. Find a book in one of the 10 categories of the challenge. 2. Read the book. 3. Share with someone else your thoughts about the book. Log your reading and activity online here. There will be an opportunity to publicly share your review of the book as well on the challenge website.
