(Lakeview, Ore)— February 5, 2018 –Starting today Lake County Library District is again teaming up with Harney County Library to take on Hood River County Library District and Pendleton Public Library in a three-way race to see which library’s patrons can reach one million pages first. Will this be the year we lose the title, or will bragging rights be retained? Only you can decide.
The Million Page Challenge is open to people of all ages. Materials read (or listened to) must be owned by a library to count in the challenge so stop in today or download an audiobook or ebook online. The challenge begins February 5 and ends March 17, 2018. The library that reaches a million pages first wins bragging rights so turn in your pages early. If no library has reached a million pages by March 17, the library with the most pages read wins. The top 10 readers in Lake County will also receive small prizes.
To join, stop by your local library to pick up a book mark to track your reading – or keep track yourself on any old piece of paper.
Books, magazines, newspapers, e-books, and audiobooks checked out from the library all count. Items you purchase yourself do not count. Participants will need to record the title and number of pages they read or listen to. To count audiobook and ebook “pages,” library staff can help you look up the number of pages of a print book of the same title. Pages can be turned in any time at any Lake County Library District location.
Questions about the contest may be directed to Amy Hutchinson, Lake County Library Director, at 541-947-6019.
