2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge

I know I have hinted at joining this challenge before, but this is my official commitment. This is one of the few 2009 challenges that I actually completed, and I must say that I have grown quite fond of my local library as a result. I think it is a sign that I have spent too much time in the library when the librarian sees me walk in and says, "Oh, Molly....I just put some new books on the shelf for you." She knows my name?!

Anyway....in 2009 I committed to read 25 library books over the course of the year. As of today, I have a read a total of 35! So, in an effort to follow the fearless leader of this challenge, J. Kaye, and "aim high" --- I will shoot for the Just My Size level and commit to read 50 library books over the course of this year. And as she says, if I just read 25 I am still a winner!

So how about you? Are you willing to support your local library? The challenge rules are really quite simple: any book format available at the library is allowable (audio books, eReads, re-reads, YA, children's, etc) and crossovers from other challenges can be included. You do not have to preselect your books and only have to commit to read a minimum of 25 library books from January 1 - December 31. Piece of cake, right?

I very much look forward to continuing my patronage of the public library.

Have fun Molly. I like this one too, as it's easily attainable, except that it conflicts with my Reading from My Shelves Project - 2010...LOL oh well (i like a challenge) good luck

You will be successful at this one, I just know for sure. Have a lot of fun with it.

I'm signed up for this one. Ordinarily, I'd hit 50 pretty easily, but I have so many on my shelves (and my goal is to read them next year!) that I signed up for only 25. Most likely a majority of these will be audios

Your post warms this librarian's heart:) I'll have to look into this challenge!

Good luck with this one. I check out a lot of audios but I am afraid to sign up for any more challenges!

I'm in for this challenge too! I did sign up for the highest level but I am thinking that it might be too far! We will see though!

I'll be joining this one too. I love my library! And my librarians know my name too, and my childrens. In fact they are brilliant with the kids, and make suggestions on less well known books they might enjoy based on what they've already read.
