May Reading Challenge Drawing Winner

Nancy L. wins the May drawing

Congratulations to Nancy L. for winning the May drawing for the Dive Deep Adult Reading Challenge.

During the “Dive Deep 2013 Adult Reading Challenge,” we are challenging our adult patrons to read 12 books throughout the year within certain categories:

  • Biography
  • Mystery
  • History

  • About Iowa
  • Classic novel
  • Non-fiction

  • Adventure
  • Hobby
  • Audiobook

  • Fiction
  • Reader’s choice
  • Award-winning

We hope that this program will embolden patrons to read something a little bit different and have a little fun.


Patrons who sign up for the challenge will receive an entry form to keep track of the books they have read.  Each month of participation patrons will be entered into the monthly prize drawing—awarded on the first open day of the next month. Patrons who participate all twelve months will be entered into the special prize drawing to be awarded in January 2014.

The Challenge by the numbers to date:

  • 24 --> average number of participant per month
  • 36 --> number of participants
  • 121 --> number of books read for the challenge

You can still participate:

  1. Start today!  Read a book in any of the categories above and let us know what you read and in what category by closing June 29th to be entered into this month's drawing. If you have no idea what to read check out the What are we reading? page on this site.
  2. Want to "catch up" to be entered into the end-of-the-year drawing?? Start reading in any five extra categories and let us know what you read.  You may only be entered into the monthly drawing once but you must read from all twelve categories by December 31st to be eligible for the end-of-the-year drawing!
