Eighty people attended our hugely successful kick-off event at the Flint Memorial Library and we want you to be part of the fun too!

What is the 15 in ’15 Challenge? 

It’s simple. We challenge you to read 15 books in 2015. You can read any book, any genre, and in any format.

I missed the kick-off, is it too late to join?

You can join anytime during the year! Whether you read one or 100 books, we want patrons to be part of the fun.

I attended the kick-off and signed in. Does that mean I am registered for the challenge?

No. the sign-in sheet was for the committee to know who attended the event. To be registered for the challenge, please go to the 15 in ’15 link at the top of our library’s homepage ( It is very simple to register.

How do I register?

You can either register online (using the 15 in ’15 tab) on our library homepage or you can come to the circulation desk at the library.

How do I get my raffle tickets?

When you finish a book, bring your log sheet to the library or tell the staff you are keeping track online. You can pick up your raffle tickets each time you read a book or save them for your next visit. On the 15th of each month we will draw a ticket. The winner will receive a $15 Amazon gift card. We recommend turning in your tickets as you finish a book to increase your chances to win the monthly drawing! The Challenge will culminate with a grand prize drawing in December! Every ticket received during the year will be entered.

Do I have to rate and review the books I read to get my tickets?

No. You only have to list the title of the book and the author to earn tickets. Participants are welcome to add a review and/or rate the book if they choose.

Is the Challenge meant for someone like me? – I read 15 books in a month!

The challenge is for everybody! Whether you read a little or a lot isn’t important. We applaud your reading and appreciate that you are a regular supporter of the Flint Memorial Library. Be rewarded for your reading by attending the special programs, entering the raffles and adding your titles to our grand total for 2015.

Whether you read or listen to one book — be part of the fun. The library and reading can be enjoyed by everyone. We want you to be a part of the celebration.

We are busy planning three additional events to keep you motivated throughout the year. Keep an eye out for information about our spring event.
