Many of us likely have a reading goal we set for each new year like clockwork. But how can libraries encourage students to get as excited about reading new and different materials as we do? At the Penn Valley branch of Metropolitan Community College, the library adapted Book Riot’s popular Read Harder Challenge and created a year-long program to encourage exploration of the library collections and increased elements of diversity and inclusion. With reading suggestions from various sources and prizes (of course), this program started as an idea for a book display and has morphed into something much larger for the library.
