2019 Winter Reading Challenge – “Passport to Everywhere”

January 15 - March 15

It’s a great big world full of all sorts of unique and wonderful sights! But you don’t have to travel far from home to experience the beauty and culture of other locations. Simply pick up book, or download an eBook or eAudiobook, and you have a ready-made passport to exotic landscapes.

This year, Mid-Continent Public Library is celebrating books with a great sense of setting.

The Winter Reading Challenge is an opportunity for adults to celebrate the enjoyment and gratification of leisure reading and earn a 2019 commemorative Winter Reading Challenge coffee mug by reading five books in two months and qualify to win a special grand prize trip for two!

Prepare to travel the globe with us as we lose ourselves in all the heart-pounding adventures and sensory experiences that a truly great book can evoke.

Want to enhance your worldwide trek? Meet a new travel partner at one of our many themed book groups or special program at one of our branches, or online during our Winter Reading Challenge Facebook virtual events. More information coming soon!

Let’s stamp that passport with an excellent read!
