Norwalk, CT – It’s June, and the Norwalk Public Library is abuzz with activity for people of all ages, to keep you informed, entertained and involved during the long, lazy days of summer.
Join NPL in a Summer Reading Challenge for adults and for a chance to win great prizes. It’s already begun! Why should children have all the fun? All you have to do is click on the link on the NPL website www.norwalkpl.org in the revolving banner that says “Adult Summer Reading Challenge”. There are 30 different challenges for grown-ups to complete. Each challenge is worth one point. There is a leaderboard which will be updated weekly and participants can check on the competition. Sign up and begin your quest. The challenges are both easily doable and diverse. You can; Subscribe to Norwalk Public Library’s Youtube Channel; Read a book that takes place in Connecticut; Attend one of Tina’s Non-Fiction Book Chats; Read a book in a Park (and feel free to submit a photo) or Listen to an audiobook. Just record your accomplishment and you are on your way.
Developed by Reference Librarian Nicole Andrzejewski and Library Assistant Carrie Varga, the goal is to offer a fun romp through the Norwalk Public Library. New to the Norwalk Public Library Staff, Nicole began working at the library in January 2021 during the Pandemic. She is enthusiastic about Summer Reading and has said, “Having Carrie as my partner putting the Adult Summer Reading Challenge together has been a joy! We both were able to express our creativity, as well as our interests when creating the 30 different challenges to engage the Norwalk community. We wanted to create challenges that not only broaden your reading interests but to also highlight Norwalk! I hope everyone has as much fun playing as we did creating it.”
Director of Library Information Services, Cynde Bloom Lahey agreed “The Library Staff is so excited to welcome our patrons back into the Library to see and browse the incredible collection of books and other Library materials just waiting to be checked out. Summer is a great time to relax and read a good book, or two or three”.
