Reading Challenges

Read for the Gold: Summer Reading Challenge 2024


This year, the Bourbonnais Public Library’s summer reading challenge is called Read for the Gold! This program runs from Saturday, June 1 to Wednesday, July 31 and invites readers of ALL AGES to participate. Read for the Gold offers tiers for kids, tweens & teens, and adults. Look forward to fun programs and fabulous prizes!

Read for the Gold was inspired by this summer’s Olympics in Paris. As athletes around the world gather to compete, we pass the torch to you. Read or listen to whatever you like, track your progress, and then step up to the podium, reading champion! Set a new personal reading record or simply say bonjour to your next favorite story. On your marks, get set, read!

We can’t wait to let the games begin. Ask a library staff member for any coaching or cheerleading you need to reach the finish line!
