March 24, 2020
York County Libraries have launched a Spring into Reading Challenge for community members who want to see how much they can read now through April 30th.  The challenge is open to all ages and is free to participate with a library card.   Interested individuals should go to yorklibraries.beanstack.org to sign up for the challenge.  
 
The reading event comes on the heels of the 2020 Winter Reading Challenge in January.  Nearly 500 York County residents of all ages participated in the nationwide reading challenge.  York County Libraries set a local goal of 10,000 minutes of reading.  Area readers far exceeded that goal by collectively reading 8,807 books and 423,326 minutes in one month. 
 
“With more families at home, reading is a great activity to keep everyone entertained while practicing social distancing,” says York County Libraries Digital Services Librarian Katherine Dannehl.  “Now is a great time to read the books on your shelves or go online to borrow something to read.”  York County Libraries offer a large digital book collection through Axis 360, comic books through ComicsPlus, and youth titles through BookFlix and TrueFlix.  All of these resources can be found online at yorklibraries.org.  Any community members with questions about the Spring into Reading Challenge should email digitalservices@yorklibraries.org
 
York County Libraries include 13 libraries that provide the latest in print and electronic information, best sellers, Wi-Fi, story times, book discussions and more.  Their librarians are passionate advocates for lifelong learning, providing opportunities and resources for all ages.  To learn more about York County Libraries’ programs, services, and resources, go to yorklibraries.org.
