2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge...

December 16, 2009

Another 2010 challenge! This one is the 2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge hosted by the challenge hostess extraordinaire, J.Kaye. And since I love my local library, how could I not participate?

Rules:
1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.
--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. To learn how to sign up without having a blog, click here.

2. There are four levels:
--The Mini – Check out and read 25 library books.
--Just My Size – Check out and read 50 library books.
--Stepping It Up – Check out and read 75 library books.
--Super Size Me – Check out and read 100 library books.
(Aim high. As long as you read 25 by the end of 2010, you are a winner.)

3. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count. Checked out like with a library card, not purchased at a library sale.

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

6. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.
This year I'm at 75 library books and counting, which blows away the 25 I signed up for... So for 2010 I'm going to try & Step It Up and check out another 75. I think I should be able to do that!

Come and join me--Sign up for the 2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge! The more the merrier!!

I am still trying to finish this challenge this year and I only signed up for 12! I cannot believe how little I've used the library considering I used to work at one and checked out books all the time. It is harder to get there now that I have a one year old and that means less time to read as well.

I'm not sure I'll be signing up for this one again in 2010 now that the minimum is 25. I want to support my local library more but right now it just isn't working out that way.

Angela~ It can be difficult to do, since you have to actually go somewhere to pick up the books... Good thing for me, the library is close to the Y, where the little man goes for swim classes, and soccer games. Otherwise I'd have trouble, too!!

Kathy~ Thank you! =)

I have two nearby. Even if I didn't, I think I'd still go. It would be way harder though. I think I'd just check out more books and go less. As it stands now, we go once or twice a week. Plus, our library has downloadable books, both audio and eformat. I can't wait for the library to have all their books listed there. Make it easier for folks who don't live close.

Welcome to the Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge! It's gonna be a fun year!!
