READ 150 +

Join the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library, the West Virginia Center for the Book, schools, and libraries across the state in West Virginia Reads 150+, a reading challenge for West Virginians of all ages and walks of life.

The year-long reading initiative encourages West Virginians to read 150 books or more during the course of 2014.  The books can be in any format (printed book, e-book, downloadable text, etc.) and from any source.  Books can be on any topic, fiction or non-fiction.

The Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library encourages our patrons to read 150+ books individually or by joining a team here at the library to read 150+ books collectively.  Teams, can have any number of members, choose a name, select a leader to keep track of the books read by team members.
