Who are the biggest readers in the land? If history is any guide, it will be Team Harney-Lake in the 2017 Million Page Challenge! Starting February 17, 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, so get to a library today to prepare for the start date. The challenge begins February 17 and ends March 31, 2017. The library that reaches a million pages first wins bragging rights so turn your pages in early. If no library has reached a million pages by March 31, 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.
