Adults and children can join the Mid-Columbia Libraries' Winter Reading Challenge starting Monday.
Participants will track their reading time at midcolumbialibraries.org. Those who read for six hours or more can pick up a prize by Jan. 15, the last day of the competition.
Everyone who completes six hours of reading will be eligible for grand prize drawings. Children who meet the six-hour reading challenge will be eligible to win an autographed photo and four hockey game tickets from the Tri-City Americans. And adults who read six hours will be entered to win a Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader from Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries.
Singer/songwriter Eric Herman of West Richland will perform at each library branch from Monday through Dec. 21. The schedule is available at midcolumbialibraries.org
