This summer, DC Public Library's Build a Better World Summer Reading program challenged readers across the district to explore books, resources and library services.

You can continue to read all year long and keep track of your reading using your reading account (click the button below). Check back with us in a few months when we'll be launching this year's Winter Reading challenge.

You can also find great suggestions for what to read next from Read Feed.
