Important information

In celebration of West Virginia's Sesquicentennial, Kanawha County Public Library joins the West Virginia Library Commission, West Virginia Center for the Book and other libraries across the state for the West Virginia Reads 150 reading challenge. This program encourages reading in the community while honoring the state's 150th birthday.

Form your team of up to 15 members to read a total of 150 books throughout 2013. Choose a team name and select one team leader to keep track of books read by the team. Team members report each book read to the team leader.

All ages can participate - friends, co-workers, book clubs, classmates. Families can use this challenge to promote reading at home. If a team member is too young or unable to read, count the books you read to them toward the team goal. Books must be read between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013.

KCPL summer reading clubs will continue as usual, and you can count the books you read for both your summer reading club and the WV Reads 150 challenge. We'll provide reading suggestions and team updates on Facebook, Twitter and in our monthly electronic newsletter. Sign up for our e-newsletter
