2024 Reading Challenge

Welcome to the 2024 DCL Reading Challenge for adults and kids!
Everything you need to get started is here.

There are 12 new challenge items to keep you reading all year—you choose the books to fit each category, or you may pick a staff-recommended read from the curated lists below. You may also ask DCL staff in our libraries for their excellent recommendations. As in years past, if one book fits more than one category, you can count it twice!
Once you've finished the challenge and submitted your completed form, you'll be entered into our year-end random drawing for one of these awesome prizes:
Adult Challenge: $200 Shanahan's Steakhouse Gift Card
Kids Challenge: Denver Zoo Annual Family Pass
