Staff members at the Newport Public Library are excited to announce that the library is turning 100 years old. Celebrations of the library’s 100th year kick off this month, and as part of the celebration, the library is issuing a Centennial Book Challenge — encouraging people to read 100 books between Sept. 1 and Aug. 31, 2020. People can sign up for the Centennial Book Challenge at the library, located at 35 NW Nye St.
Read 100 books (or eBooks or audiobooks) and win prizes along the way. For every 25 books (or eBooks or audiobooks) individuals read, they will receive a prize when they bring their reading log to the library’s circulation counter
This Centennial Book Challenge is free, open to the public and sponsored by the Newport Library Foundation. For more information, visit www.newportlibrary.org or call 541-265-2153.
