Menasha Winter Reading Challenge

January 1st - January 31st, 2019


Let’s read 5000+ books in January!


Mark Cuban (from Shark Tank and owner of the Dallas Mavericks) has challenged us to read again this January, and is donating $10,000 to split between the winning libraries.  

Last year we won with 7301 books read in the month of January!  It was the most of any library that participated.

If we win again this year, we would like to use the money to sponsor an author visit to our schools.

Anyone in the Menasha School District area can sign up (even if they don’t have or are not students in our district).

To sign up, go to:
