The Great Reading Challenge of 2021

Welcome to the Sixth Annual 

Great Reading Challenge!

The GRC is a yearlong reading challenge that is open to adults 18 and over who have a Carnegie-Stout Public Library card. To complete the challenge, you need to read 18 books by the end of 2021. You can use any of the books you have already read since January 1, 2021. The challenge of the GRC is to read books that fit one of the many categories.

  • SILVER LEVEL (30-49 books read)
  • GOLD LEVEL (50-79 books read)
  • PLATINUM LEVEL (80-99 books read)

The January 2021 Reading Roulette Category is: A Random Reader's Shuffle

Pick 4 books that you have been meaning to read for a long time. Shuffle the books (either the actual books or the names written on pieces of paper). Close your eyes and choose one. 

Your January Reading Roulette Book counts for two books read for the GRC.

Happy Reading!!
