The Interscholastic Reading Competition provides students in grades 4 through 12 the opportunity to test their knowledge about books they have read. Teams from various school districts read different books selected in advance by the Appalachia Intermediate Unit 8 and compete each Spring and Fall, answering questions about those books. Reading Teams can compete on Elementary, Junior High or High School levels, so contact your home school district to see if your school has a team!
If you’re looking for a specific Reading Competition book, stop in the Children’s Department and check out our Reading Competition book display! We have copies of the books for each level of competition.

This does not mean that you personally have direct experiences, but you can also be affected in some way by them. And really, who isn’t? Consider coming to a local event (visit our FB page for information), and please consider sharing this with someone who would benefit!
