SYRACUSE – Did you sign up for Syracuse Public Library’s “I’m Breaking Out in 2021” reading challenge? Not sure if you did? Check upstairs to find out. The reading challenge officially ends Friday, Oct. 15 and the library has been collecting special promos throughout the year to serve as prizes.
Participants track their reading progress by listing titles either independently or by using the library’s monthly chart, which is available for pick up or online. They can also save their due date slips. Books are not required to have come from the Syracuse Public Library, and don’t fret if you don’t fully meet your goal. Contact Becky Brower with any questions at [email protected] or (574) 457-3022.
