Cross county reading challenge results in 10,070 books read

Posted

LIBERTY, NY — The School Library System (SLS) at Sullivan BOCES, with the help of the school librarians, continues to build a reading culture through the Cross County Reading Challenge. As a result, students have read 10,070 books during the 2020-2021 school year.

The program started by asking Sullivan County students to talk about the books they have read independently. As students finished reading a book, the school librarians asked them to go online and enter the book they read and where they got the book. With each student being part of their district’s team, as they record books, students and school districts can watch their school’s flag move as students read their way across the county. If students shared or read the same book, the district receives an additional entry. At the end of each month, random students won a prize for their reading efforts.

At the end of the 2020-21 school year, BOCES recognized the participating school districts for reading the most books during this year’s reading challenge. Districts also received a banner for the school to display.
