Cedar Lee Literacy Challenge

(Chill out and read picture)

Everyone in the community is invited to help Cedar Lee Middle School, Bealeton, reach its Literacy Challenge goal of 100,000 books read by the end of the school year. The challenge was issued earlier this school year by the school's principal, Mr. Steve Parker, and Fauquier County Public Library pledged to support the effort.

No matter what your age or interests, you can use the library to help Cedar Lee meet its Literacy Challenge goal. Don't have a Fauquier County Public Library card? It's easy to sign up online.

Find the perfect book by perusing:
accelerated reading lists
best sellers at the library
book lists for teens and adults

Write book reviews to post on the library's teen blog Library Lounging (this one!) or post in the Bealeton Library Young Adult display areas (Contact Helena Richardson to find out how.)

Not only books count - don't forget your online
research tools. Check out audio and downloadable books - they are great for traveling and they count, too. Keep track of library books you've read using the library's Reading History service - then log your titles on the Cedar Lee Literacy Challenge site.

-Books read since June 20, 2007 count.
-Accelerated Reader books, comic books, text books, magazines, newspapers
-Every 5 issues of a newspaper read typically will count as a book.
-Each 100 pages of technical text will be a book
