Take on our winter reading challenge! We have created 13 reading categories, based on Winter Olympic Sports. Choose just one event, read a book, and turn in an entry form. Winning is that easy. As we keep track of the medal count from Sochi, Russia, we'll also see which group of Newton Falls Patrons can earn the most medals. It's the teens, against the adults, against the kids, and the kids are already in the lead.

Kids -- 4 medals
Teens -- 0 medals
Adults -- 1 medal

Check out the categories below, and join today. Entries are available at our front desk until the Closing Ceremonies in Sochi. Check out the categories for kids and teens below. Adult categories vary slightly.
