We’re celebrating 2018 as a year of great reads and reflecting on some of APL’s favorite titles. Here are the library’s most borrowed Adult, YA, and Children’s books of 2018:
The 2019 Reading Challenges are here! Are you struggling with what to read in the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Challenge categories? We can help! Throughout the year, we will highlight several juvenile, YA, and adult fiction (or non-fiction) books in most of the categories. These aren’t the only books we have available in the categories, but ideas that can help you spark inspiration, help clarify the category, and (hopefully) make your decision easier!
We’re starting at the top of the list with “A book by an author of color or with a POC [person of color] protagonist.”
It’s the start of a new year and for many of us, that means reading challenges!
If you’re looking for books to read this year, check out the library’s two reading challenges. Each challenge asks that you read at least 12 books over the course of the year. Follow along with one or both challenges for a fun, book-filled 2019!
“Everyone Has Read it Except Me”
In the “Everyone Has Read it Except Me” challenge, choose one book each month from the five choices to make your own reading challenge.
There are 40 options in the “Choose-Your-Own-Adventure” challenge, simply pick 12 to make your own reading challenge for the year! There’s sure to be something for everyone in this challenge.
