2009 Support Your Local Library Challenge

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

The 2009 Support Your Local Library Challenge has 3 levels of participation ranging from borrowing 12, 25 or 50 books of any format from your local library during the time period of 1/1/09-12/31/09.

Goal: To read 50 books from my local library in 2009.

My children and I visit the library bi-weekly. Not only do I aim to support our local library (which is really a good one), but also to instill a love for reading in my girls.
