In partnership with channel 11 WBALTV2017 Reading Challenge


Check out the 2017 Reading Challenges...!



To submit your entry, visit Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and post or tweet a photo of yourself holding the book you have chosen to read for current month of the 2017 Baltimore County Public Library Reading Challenge (“Challenge”) with hashtag #bwellread. Camera-shy participants may post a photograph of the book they’ve chosen.


The photo and hashtag will together be referred to as an "entry." Photos must be in a format compatible with Facebook, Twitter's or Instagram’s file format and size restrictions. Unlimited entries are permitted during the promotion, but only one prize will be awarded per account.


All entries must comply with the entry requirements specified below. Any entry that does not comply with the entry requirements will not be eligible for entry into the promotion.


Entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. ET on the last business day of each month to be eligible for consideration. No correspondence about entries will be entered into, nor will entries be acknowledged as received. If all required information is not included, entry will be disqualified. BCPL is not responsible for late or incomplete entries.

By entering this promotion, the entrant gives his/her consent for BCPL to use photo for promotional and marketing purposes.
