Need some motivation to keep up with reading this year? Take part in our 12 in 12 Reading Challenge for adults!

Every month we’ll have a different genre/theme for you to pick a book from. If you finish a book from the selected category for that month, you can come to the information desk to fill out a raffle ticket.

At the end of each month, we’ll draw a winner for a $20 ShopRite gift card!

No registration necessary, just keep an eye on the calendar and stop in to fill out your raffle entries (limit of 3 per person/month)!
