Director’s Blog: January 2024

January is when we imagine the best versions of ourselves. 

If becoming your best self means spending more time reading and connecting with fellow bibliophiles, perhaps 2024 is the year you take on the Extreme Reader Challenge at Tacoma Public Library. 

The Extreme Reader Challenge was created by a dedicated group of Tacoma Public Library staff in 2019. As this program enters its fifth year, participating in the challenge continues to be a great way to meet other readers and explore new titles and authors. 

In order to complete the challenge, readers complete 50 books in 50 weeks from 55 categories. Registration for 2024 is now open! Find all of the information you need to get started on the Extreme Reader webpage.

I hope 2024 brings you a wealth of discovery and connections. Thank you for supporting your libraries.
