Genre Reading Challenge

Ready for the ultimate reading challenge? BE Library divides our fiction books into eight genres. Explore those genres by reading one book from each genre throughout the 2023-24 school year. 

To help you plan your reading, we’ll be highlighting one genre per month. If you read that genre during that month you can fill out a  Reading Rewards raffle ticket

Registered students who complete the challenge of reading the eight books by May 1, 2025 will receive the following: a free book and an invite to the library’s Readers Celebration party.

One lucky student will also win a pair of brand new Beats Studio Buds!
