Get reading with the Horsham District 2019 Reading Challenge

As part of Horsham District Year of Culture, your local libraries are inviting you to take part in our 2019 Reading Challenge. Join us in making 12 reading resolutions that we hope will inspire you, challenge you and connect you to fellow readers in the district.

The challenge is running in Horsham, Southwater, Storrington, Billingshurst, Steyning, Henfield and Pulborough Libraries. Join the challenge by popping in with your library card (or some ID) or by giving us a call. Find out how to contact your local library here.

You might want to join as an individual reader, looking to kick start a reading habit or get out of a reading rut. Or perhaps you would like to join us as part of a reading group. Maybe create a new group with your colleagues? However you choose to be involved, everyone is welcome to take up the challenge.

Sign up in any Horsham district library.

Please join us at any time, and don’t panic if you miss a month. It’s the taking part that counts!

At the end of the year join us for our celebration “Books Light Up Your Life” event, where everyone who has taken part will be welcomed to Horsham Library to celebrate our year of shared reading.
