Genre Quest 2021-22

What is Genre Quest?

Genre Quest is a nine-month program at the library that began in 2020. The goal of Genre Quest is to inspire readers of all ages to pursue genres they may not necessarily find in their comfort zone. Most importantly, it keeps readers engaged with what the library has to offer ALL readers. Who knows? You may unexpectedly find a new favorite story!

Each month all you have to do is visit a desk at the Lewiston City Library and say you read a book from that month's genre. You will then receive an exclusive button featuring that genre as a prize! Happy Questing!
