Check it Out Challenge


Each month, read, watch, or listen to something based on that month’s theme and be entered into a prize drawing. If you complete all 12 months, you’ll get a prize for finishing and an entry into our grand prize drawing! Pick up a log at the Readers Advisory desk, or complete the challenge online.

Because of the closure of the library due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, we will accept March and April Check it Out Challenge logs through May 15th for prize drawings.
