Mentor Public Library is commemorating its 200th anniversary in 2019. (Funny, we don’t feel old.)
We’re going to celebrate by – what else? – reading. And we want you to celebrate with us!
We’ve compiled a list of 200 books for our big anniversary – everything from Walt Whitman to Margaret Atwood, Judy Blume to Goosebumps. The list includes authors from when Mentor Library Company first formed in 1819 to modern favorites.
The more books you read from our list, the bigger prizes you’ll win.
If you read:
- 10 books, you receive a MPL microfiber cloth
25 books, you earn two free books from the Friends of the Mentor Public Library
50 books, you receive MPL chap-stick. (Yes, that’s a thing.)
75 book, you get a MPL Pint Glass
an astonishing 100 books, you win a gorgeous MPL blanket.
But reading is its own reward, and you don’t need to read a book a day to make it worth your while. Peruse our list, pick a few favorites, and start reading!
