#WPFreedomToRead Challenge

“I'll be absolutely candid and honest, it's embarrassing that we are banning books in this country, in this culture, in this day and age.”LeVar Burton

As part of our year-long celebration of banned and challenged books, adults and teens are invited to join our #WPFreedomToRead Challenge. It's fun! It's easy! There are prizes! Yes, YOU could win a Kindle Paperwhite or other bookish prize! All you need to do is read banned or challenged books and log what you've read in READsquared. Each banned or challenged book you read and log earns you an entry in our prize raffle. Prizes will be awarded during National Library week, April 23-29th, 2023. To get started, visit this page and register (see “Login” at right) OR download the free READsquared app at the Apple or Google Play store. Create an account and start tracking your reads. Add a brief review or comment on what you've read (or listened to, if you prefer audiobooks). Not sure what to read? We've got a variety of banned and challenged books to choose from in our Libby app, and you can find even more at the Library. To sign up for a free one-on-one training session on how to use Libby, click here or call the Library at 914-422-1400. Defend the First Amendment and celebrate the freedom to read freely – join our #WPFreedomtoRead Challenge!

  1. Linda Stern

    As I was going through the list of recommended books, I realized I have read so many of them over the years. Do I log them even though they were read long ago?

    • Kristen, Adult Librarian

      Hi Linda, I would stick to logging more recent reads but for the older titles you can include them if you also include reviews.
