January Reading Adventures

The weather may be frightful during the month of January but Peoria Public Library has lots of fun reading adventures for you to go on during the month. One adventure is the “Around the Library Reading Challenge.” This challenge takes place at Lakeview and McClure branches and is for all ages. Go into Lakeview or McClure branch and get a challenge sheet and read through the non-fiction side of the library. Read one book from each part of the Dewey Decimal System to complete your reading challenge. Turn in your sheet to be entered into a drawing for a $10 gift card for Barnes and Noble. (There will be one winner from three age categories.)

The other reading adventure is one that takes place at all the library locations for all ages. This adventure is called “Winter Reading Treasures.” There are different reading challenges for different age groups. Pick up your reading log for any branch and “unearth hidden gems.” When you turn in your reading log you can choose your prize from the treasure bob. Turning in your reading log gets you an entry into a prize drawing for a $10 gift card. There will be one winner per branch and there will also be one grand library-wide prize! The lucky winner gets a new Kindle Fire Tablet.
