WV Reads 150+
Join South Charleston Public Library, the West Virginia Library Commission (WVLC), the West Virginia Center for the Book, and other libraries across the state in West Virginia Reads 150+, a fun reading challenge.
The year-long reading initiative encourages West Virginians to read 150+ books in any format (printed book, e-book, downloadable text, etc.) from any source, during the course of 2014. Books can be on any topic, fiction or non-fiction; they must be read between January 1 and December 31, 2014.
People can read 150+ books individually, or create teams to read 150+ books collectively. Libraries across West Virginia are encouraged to form teams to compete. Teams are unlimited in numbers. Teams must choose a name and select a leader to keep track of the books read by team members.
All ages and groups can participate – friends, co-workers, families, book discussion groups, classmates, community service groups, scout troops, church groups. If children are too young to read on their own, kids can have their parents read to them. Families can use their Summer Reading Program reading toward their West Virginia Reads 150+ tally.
