Ideas for Monthly Reading Challenges
It's a new year, which means our Youth Department staff is taking on a new Reading Wildly Challenge. 2021's attempt to expand our reading horizons includes diversity (African American, Asian American, Latinx, LGBTQ+, Muslim, Native American, social justice, and translated works), different formats (collective biography, first chapter, and narrative nonfiction), and a handful of topics we need to brush up on (animals, foster care, mindfulness, sports, and STEM). How will YOU broaden your reading horizons this year? Would you like to take on a monthly challenge? Brightly has plenty to get you started!
