2023 marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of Chanute! To celebrate, the library will be hosting several events throughout the year in coordination with the City of Chanute’s yearlong celebration. To start the year, we are hosting a 150th Reading Challenge!

To participate, download the log here, pick one up at the library or log your reading activity on the Reader Zone app using the code bef27. For the challenge, we ask that you read for 20 minutes a day for 150 days. When you have completed your daily goal, mark it on your log by coloring a book icon or crossing it out. On Reader Zone, simply respond “Yes” that you have read for 20 minutes every day. It’s that simple!

When you finish the challenge, return the log or show your Reader Zone app to the library and receive special prizes and a free book. We hope everyone participates in this challenge and helps us celebrate Chanute’s birthday!
