Sarasota County Libraries will participate in the inaugural Winter Reading Challenge, Jan. 1 – 31, 2018. This initiative is sponsored by billionaire and “Shark Tank” investor Mark Cuban, who has challenged nearly 100 libraries and schools across the nation to meet a collective goal of encouraging patrons and library staff to read at least 70,000 books during the month of January. If the goal is met, Cuban pledges to donate $25,000 to First Book, a nonprofit enterprise that provides new books, learning materials and other essential resources to children in need. 

Our system-wide goal is 1,000 books. Register and participate at https://scgov.beanstack.org/reader365
