Read-a-Thon Mini-Challenge

"Love Your Local Library"
Hosted by Jessica at The Curious Reader.

  1. What is the name of your local library? What city is it located in? My local library is the Draper Library, which is a branch of the Salt Lake County Library System. It's located in the city of Draper.

  2. How often do you go to the library? If you're a regular, do the staff know you? I go to the library nearly every week with my younger kids. Some of the staff know us very well.

  3. Do you browse while you're there or just pick up items you have placed on reserve? I use the library's "hold" system profusely, but I also like to browse. At least once a month, my kids and I spend several hours at the library, browsing, using the computers, and just "hanging out."

  4. What is your favorite thing about your local library? The children's staff - Anne, in particular - run some excellent programs that my kids and I have enjoyed over the years. My daughters and I have participated in "Great Reads for Girls," and my son currently attends a monthly "No Girls Allowed!" event.


  1. No girls allowed! I love it when libraries do fun events like this for kids. It's great that you take advantage of it.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Those sound like neat programs! :)
