Community Reading Challenge
Calling all kids, teens, and adults – join our “Goffstown Reads: All Together Now” community reading challenge!
We have set a community-wide goal of reading 4,000 hours during our 8-week program. Let’s work together to beat last summer’s record of 3,500 hours!
Kids and teens will count their reading time in hours and adults will earn 8 hours for each book read. This challenge encourages a healthy reading competition between age groups. Who will read the most—children, teens, or adults? To celebrate reaching our goal, the Friends of the Goffstown Public Library are generously funding an ice cream celebration for all participants on Tuesday, August 15 at 3:30 p.m.
All reading logs, activity logs, and prizes will be tracked in Beanstack.
