Welcome to our Blog

This blog has been created for the Joplin Public Library to compete in the Missouri Book Challenge starting January 1, 2011. You will earn points for each book read. To get credit for reading a book you must post an entry about your book. It must include your name, the title, author, # of pages, and a short entry. We will have different categories to earn bonus points, such as reading books from the ALA reading lists, Newberry Award winners, and random subjects to be listed at my discretion ;-). You can earn additional points by completing challenges or other goals that will appear throughout the year. This is so much more than a race...your participation makes you eligible for drawings throughout the year. Let's show those other libraries what makes the staff at JPL so great!!!
