Welcome to the Fifth Annual Great Reading Challenge at Carnegie-Stout Public Library.

The GRC is a yearlong reading challenge that is open to adults 18 and over. To complete the challenge, you need to read 18 books by the end of 2020. You can use any of the books you have already read since January 1 this year. The challenge of the GRC is to read books that fit one of the many categories. You can use the category list as inspiration, or read what you already planned to and find categories to fit. It works both ways. Registration for GRC 2020 begins on Monday, January 13, 2020.
