Join Us!


Join the Mashpee Library, as well as libraries across the state, for this year’s Massachusetts Center for the Book Reading Challenge!  The Reading Challenge gives people of all ages a chance to set and meet the goal of reading a book each month, from a specific category, to share their experience within their reading community.   

The steps are simple, read a book that fits that month’s category.  When you have finished the book, visit and fill out a short form to share your reading experience.  At the end of the year, participants who complete the challenge will be entered into a drawing to win a tote bag full of books and other Massachusetts goodies!

The categories for the 2024 Reading Challenge are:

   January: A book you read years ago that you may feel different about now

   February: A book with a color in the title

   March: A book whose protagonist has a different culture or lifestyle from you

   April: A book about nature, the environment, or climate change

   May: A graphic novel

   June: A book that inspired a film or television series

   July: A book by an author born outside of the United States

   August: A book whose title starts with the same letter as your birthday month

   September: A debut book by a Massachusetts author

   October: A book about a time in history you’d like to know more about

   November: A relaxing, soul-soothing book

   December: A well-reviewed book in your least favorite genre

   If you are looking for book ideas or inspiration, stop by our second floor.  The Library will display a selection of books for that month’s category.  Good luck and happy reading!
