Delaware County Libraries’ Reading Challenges

For Ages 6-Adult: Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated each year from Sep. 15 to Oct. 15. This year, the theme is “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation.” Honor diverse voices, unique perspectives, and rich cultural traditions through activities and book recommendations. Log your reading and complete activities to earn badges throughout the challenge. This challenge runs from September 15 - October 15.

For Ages 5-Adult: NASA’s Artemis Project: To the Moon, Mars, and Beyond!

NASA is readying the first mission of the Artemis spaceflight program. In Ancient Greek mythology, Artemis was the goddess of the Moon and twin sister to the sun god Apollo. Much like NASA’s Apollo program, which took humans to the Moon in the 1960s and 1970s, the Artemis program will take humans back to the Moon and prepare us for traveling to Mars and beyond for the first time. Learn more about the Artemis program and NASA’s plans for a new generation of crewed spaceflight by completing the activity badges in this reading and activity challenge! Register now! This challenge will run September 1-30.

"I read a book one day and my whole life was changed." - Orhan Pamuk

It's true that so many aspects of life are inspired by, enhanced by, and improved by what we read! As you unlock each month's Activity Badge, you'll be automatically entered to win quarterly prizes! Don't forget to log your minutes and write reviews along the way. Happy 2022!
