Race to the Peak Challenge #3

We're now in the final month of our Brrrrwicks Adult Winter Reading Challenge. There is still plenty of time to participate! This reading challenge is open to teens and adults with a Berwick, North Berwick, or South Berwick library card and runs until March 31st. The adult and young adult books you read (or listen to) over the course of the challenge will help you earn tickets that you can enter for a chance to win a prize, as well as points for your town's library to win a silly trophy. You can read all the details about the Winter Reading Challenge HERE.


As part of the reading challenge, you can earn extra points and tickets by reading 5 books that match a set of reading prompts. Alaina talked about the first and second set of reading prompts and some book recommendations in earlier posts - you can learn more about challenge number one HERE and challenge number two HERE.
