Adult Summer Reading Challenge 2024

The Westport Library Summer Reading Challenge 2024

Come read with us: June 1 - August 31

Heyo, Readers! Get ready for the Library’s 8th Annual Adult Summer Reading Challenge, your chance to saddle up and out-read your competition.

If you have participated in the past, welcome back — the rules are all the same. If this is your first time joining us, we're thrilled to have you, and we've got a fresh round of 25 great categories to keep you busy this summer (categories to be unveiled June 1). You can do all of them or only one, or anything in between, just as long as you have fun reading! Challenge yourself; we dare you!

The rules are simple and there are only two: 

  1. Categories may only be fulfilled once.
  2. Each book can only be used for one category.

Once you have read a book that fulfills a category, you can submit it via the form on our website (also available starting June 1) and keep track of your progress on our leaderboard.

The leaderboard is an awesome place to see what everyone else is reading, and give recommendations to our community of readers. You can also join our Westport Reading Challenge Facebook Group and talk books all summer long.

Why should you join the challenge? Because as Rita L, one of last years participants, said: “The Westport Library’s summer reading challenge is one of the best in the state! I love seeing what everyone else is reading and getting ideas about books that I end up LOVING but never would have read otherwise! Reading is my favorite hobby, and the Summer Reading Challenge takes me to the next level every year!”
