For Summer Challenge, we want you to take a little bit of time each day to read, but we also want you to aim high with your reading and connect with others by reading good books. This summer, we have chosen one book each month for you to read from our online collection to read and discuss. On the last Thursday of the month, we will host an online discussion lead by DC Public Library staff and friends.
