Join us for the fall 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.

Read a book of your choice for 3 of the 10 prompts listed below to earn a prize. If you need inspiration, check out the collections hyperlinked in the reading prompts below. After you’ve read three or more books from the challenge, claim your prize by either:

  • Filling out your bookmark and bring it to any branch to trade it in for your prize, or
  • Fill out the online form below then come into any branch to claim your prize.


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