The Summer Reading Challenge for 2018 begins!

This year, your librarians have nominated their Top Six Books in each age group for the River Reads Choice Award. Read at least two of the six titles, then cast your vote using the links below. Kids and Teens who complete this challenge earn a special prize. Adults who vote will be entered into a special drawing at the end of the summer. Once all votes are tallied, we will announce the winners. Talk to your friends about your favorites, and get them to vote, too!
