Let’s see which genre will come out on top this summer. We encourage you to partake in our Genre Reading Race where the results are in your hands. Plus, you could WIN a KOBO Libra Colour or a $50 Yooneek Book Store gift card. Which genre will come out on top? It’s up to you!

Ready! Set! Read!

See which genre is ahead in the race by checking out our display in the library. Each book you read boosts its genre position in the race. The tickets supporting the two winning genres will be entered into a draw for the First and Second Prizes. Read as many genres as possible to increase your chances of entering the draw. The winners will be announced, via social media, on Monday, September 9th.

Here is how it works:

  • Read a Book: Choose any book that interests you.
  • Fill out and submit a ticket: Complete and submit a genre ticket for the book you just read.
  • Repeat: Keep reading and submitting tickets for every genre you read.

Display updated weekly on Mondays.
