Quarantine Reading Challenge

Update 6/30/20:

Thank you to all who participated in our Quarantine Reading Challenge! It was a close competition, but the winners have been selected. Our first place winner, Annette Tyler, read 12 books and our second place winner, Diana Merritt, read 11 books. Congratulations to our winners, and well done to all who participated!


Have you been reading as much as we have? The staff at the Morristown and Morris Township Library realize that many people have upped their reading while under quarantine. And while being stuck at home isn’t fun, we thought we could make it a bit more fun!

From May 1st-May 31st, we challenge you to read or listen to as many books as you can, and keep a list of how many you have read or heard. At the end of the month, submit your list to us and whoever has read the most books wins! First and second place winners will receive a gift certificate to a local restaurant which is delivering or offering curbside pickup during this time! This contest is for adults only (ages 18 and up) who have a library card with a library in Morris County.

Include in your submission: a list of each book you have read (title and author), your name, address, phone number, email address, and library card number. Only one submission per person. Submissions will be accepted via email or regular mail postmarked by or on June 7th, 2020.
