Join us for the first season of the Adult Reading Challenge! Bookmarks with 10 reading prompts will be available at all KPL locations. Or, download and print a bookmark here.

Each quarter (winter, spring, summer, and fall) will feature a custom seasonal pin design. Collect all four and show them off for bragging rights!
