Community Reading Challenge

ImageECC Library is proud to announce our participation in Gail Borden Public Library District’s Community Reading Challenge!

Gail Borden has set a goal for the community of 100,000 hours of summer reading minutes. Participants who are 18 and older can log their minutes through Gail Borden’s Community Reading Challenge site. The site also offers links to summer reading programs for younger participants. ECC community members are invited to join in this community effort.

Beginning Wednesday, ECC Library reference desks will offer stations where students, faculty, staff, and community borrowers who wish to participate can go to the link for the Community Reading Challenge and sign up.

If you are looking for summer reading ideas, check out the display on ECC Library’s second floor. In addition, you can also explore the following links for more great reading suggestions:

Finally, as a kick-off event, we are having a Reading Challenge Reading Room gathering on Wed., June 12 from 2-3 pm.  Come enjoy enjoy some light refreshments and quiet reading time in ECC Library’s beautiful reading room on the second floor of the Library. We will also have a book cart available with more great reading selections to browse.

Please join us in this effort and help make ECC part of a 100,000 hours summer reading community in 2013!
