Summer Reading ChallengeRemember participating in summer reading challenges when you were a kid? The Katz Library is extending a summer reading challenge for grown-up kids this summer. At least one of our staff members will be participating in this challenge as well. Unlike the challenges of our youth, there will be no pizza parties or gold stars at the end; just a sense of completion. There’s no rule saying you can’t throw yourself a pizza party though! This just gives us an excuse to escape into a good read or experience a genre that is different from our usual preference. Sometimes having a goal to work towards is all the push we need. To get you started, below are some ideas on what type of books to read. As always, we have the resources you need to help you find the right book:
