Where We Come From: Winter Reading Challenge

January 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CST

Every person has a rich history and unique stories to tell — dive deeper into your own this winter!

Explore topics like family, history, and identity while reading Where We Come From, a poetic picture book for all ages written by John Coy, Shannon Gibney, Sun Yung Shin, and Diane Wilson and illustrated by Dion MBD. Log your reading minutes and reflect on your own story — all while earning badges on your virtual bingo card!

From Jan. 1-31, Mobile Public Library is participating in “Where We Come From,” a reading challenge sponsored by Lerner. For logging your minutes read and completing fun activities, you will earn badges that feature some of the beautiful artwork from the book itself. And don’t forget to earn bingo! The top performing libraries and schools will earn special prizes sponsored by Lerner, including special shoutouts and even signed copies of the book. Happy reading!
