Reading is a lot of things… it’s a gateway to your imagination, it’s a way to entertain yourself and others, it’s a way to learn about the world around you but did you know that it can also be a fun competition? Even a sport? Thanks to the WOW! Reading Challenge and the Adopt-a-Library Literacy Program, it is now.

Who participates?

The WOW! Reading Challenge is open to any and all Preschools, Elementary Schools, Junior High/Middle Schools, and High Schools in Pictou and Antigonish Counties, Nova Scotia. 

We encourage schools to foster a closer relationship between schools, the public library, and the police for the benefit of children, and to encourage literacy development and as spirit of healthy competition.
