Library challenging patrons to read a hundred books in the New Year

| January 5, 2022

DOVER (WJER) (Jan. 5, 2022) – The director of the Dover Public Library is promoting an opportunity for patrons to challenge themselves in the new year.

Jim Gill says readers 6 and older who complete a hundred books before the end of 2022 will be invited to join the library’s prestigious 100 Book Club and attend a special reception next year.

“We give everyone a special edition t-shirt. We give them a membership card, and then we have them sign a ledger book. It’s something that’s just kind of fun. It’s fun to go back and see the inaugural class and see the names that have come back year to year.”

Gill says inductees during the reception will also get a chance to share what they read for their 100th book or the selection they found most impactful.

“So it personalizes it, and people are always interested to hear what people are into and what spoke to them over the course of the year.”

Interested patrons can stop by the library to accept the challenge and receive their reading logs for the year. Gill says audiobooks and ebooks count toward the 100-book goal as do graphic novels with a hundred pages more.
