Do you think your book club is better than others? Prove it.

Here’s how: In a March Madness-style competition, Charlotte-area book clubs can complete challenges to score two-pointers, three-pointers and free throws, plus fun weekly prizes and bragging rights.

Even better: At the end of Book Club Madness, all book clubs with over 100 points will be entered into a raffle for a table at the Library Foundation’s Verse & Vino 2022 event and a private audience with a featured author from their choice.

  • It is a prize value of over $2,000.

The details : Book Club Madness begins September 14. Participation is free and your club must have at least two members.

Challenges will include activities such as:

  • Visit to a branch of the library.
  • Share your club’s favorite book.
  • Checking a book or e-book.
  • Post a comment on the Foundation’s social networks.

How it’s made:

Step 1: Register your book club online. If he doesn’t have a name yet, you’ll need to give him one to keep track of your points.

2nd step: Tell your friends and fellow bibliophiles about it and encourage them to subscribe. You will also need to choose a Club Captain, who will be the main point of contact between your club and the Library Foundation.

Step 3: Get ready to get competitive. Although you won’t be able to score any points until the challenge starts on September 14, you can take a look at the challenges for the first week.
