Teen Books Before…Challenges

Slatted wooden table with crinkled graph paper in the center and surrounded by various art supplies.

Challenging all 6-8th graders to read 75 BOOKS BEFORE HIGH SCHOOL! Sign up at any time, and read at your own pace. Middle school is an exciting time that comes with new responsibilities, and sometimes that can feel like a lot to handle. Taking some time for yourself by reading books that you enjoy can help keep things from becoming too overwhelming. With this program, there are no assigned books, no deadlines (other than finishing before you start high school!), and no reports to write.

Large stack of books with an assortment of random objects exploding out from behind.

Challenging all high school students in grades 9-12 to read 100 BOOKS BEFORE GRADUATION! High school can be a busy time, and school work and activities can take over your life. However, reading books for fun (not just for classes) is a great way to slow down, escape real-life pressures, and recharge by stepping outside yourself for a bit. Read at your own pace and you will get there!
