Reading Challenge

Mill Valley Public Library 2014 Adult Reading Challenge: Steps, Lanes, and Paths.

July 1st through December 31st, 2014

Register here!


 Did you know that Mill Valley has an extensive network of over 175 heritage paths which dates back to the 1880s? To celebrate our city and its perambulatory history, we’re serving up a literary expedition that lets you chose your own path. Each step, lane, or path on your reading map is associated with a different book category. You’ll read 1 book for each path and earn 1 raffle ticket per book for a grand prize raffle with fantastic gifts including an iPad Mini! The final raffle will be held in early January, 2015.

Participants are encouraged to walk the corresponding trails although it’s not required.  We invite you to explore new literary landscapes while becoming actively acquainted with the city you call home.

 Register online and then pick up your reading map at the Library Reference Desk to get started! Click here for reading categories. Looking for reading suggestions? Check out our book lists.
