Achieve Your Reading Goals in the New Year

Do your goals for the new year include reading? Here are some ideas to help make that dream a reality!
 
1. Expand your reading horizons by taking a reading challenge. 
 
The 10 to Try Reading Challenge invites patrons to read broadly. Get inspired to get out of your reading comfort zone with 10 fun challenge categories.
 
2. Try audiobooks.
 
You're never too old to enjoy the simple pleasure of being read to. Try audiobooks narrated by your favorite authors, celebrities, and voice actors. Listening to audiobooks can be an entertaining way to multitask. Make your commute, chores, or exercise time more exciting with a book. Download the Libby app for an easy way to borrow and enjoy all your favorites.
 
3. Read a graphic novel.
 
Comics and graphic novels are a format rather than a genre, and there's a style and subject to suit every taste. Some comics are simple and cute. Others are densely illustrated, cerebral and literary. Looking for titles to try? Enjoy a wide variety of comics and graphic novels, available to read instantly on hoopla.
 
4. Join a book group.
 
Want to make reading a group activity? Join a book group at your local library. Or, discover an online book group inspired by your favorite celebrity's reading list. Find community in fandoms, enjoy a shared experience, and gain insightful new perspectives.
