Our patrons are invited to play along on the challenge. Be creative and find books that meet these challenges, and maybe you’ll find a new author or book that you’d never pick up otherwise. The only real rule is to have fun, and compare your finds to what staff is finding and reading.

Staff who are participating will be periodically posting the books they’ve found to meet the challenge as Staff Lists in Bibliocore. Be sure to make an account and follow along! Also, you can download a PDF version of this list here
