JOIN IN THE CHALLENGE AT YOUR LOCAL TULSA CITY-COUNTY LIBRARY!
THE READING TREE CHALLENGE
The Gathering Place, Tulsa City-County Library (TCCL) and area school districts have partnered to encourage reading all year long. The largest and oldest Cottonwood tree at the park, known as the Reading Tree, will serve as the cornerstone for literary and creative programming. We're challenging Tulsa's children to reach a county-wide goal of reading 2 million books before the park’s opening in late spring/summer 2018. Join the Reading Tree Challenge this summer by participating in TCCL’s Summer Reading Program.
HOW IT WORKS
Check out your favorite books to read and grab a book log from your local TCCL.
Don’t forget to sign up for challenge updates!
READ & LOG
Use your book log to track how many books you read. Turn your log in to the TCCL by the end of the summer to help contribute to the challenge.
As the school year begins, keep the challenge momentum going until the park’s opening either through the classroom or at home.
Watch for school participation updates and the launch of the online book log!
