Global Reading Challenge
What is the Global Reading Challenge?
The Global Reading Challenge is a Battle of the Books program sponsored by the Kalamazoo Public Library. The Challenge promotes the reading of fiction and nonfiction that celebrate the world's diverse community.
How it Works
In the month of March, school challenges are conducted in each school building by library staff. Branch challenges are then held at individual branches. Winning branch teams will compete in the District Challenge.

The mission of the Michigan News is to bring the world to Kalamazoo. We have been doing that 365 days a year since 1947. The world has changed drastically during these 66 years -- the popularity of e-readers is one of my many challenges. As the owner of a brick and mortar bookstore, my job is to educate my diverse populations on the value of coming into my store and becoming a part of an enlightened community. What e-books, digital magazines, and newspapers-on-line do for us is force us to face the hard truth that we are losing more and more of our cultural heritage.
