50/50 Book Quest Returns at the Marshall Public Library

The Marshall Public Library is challenging you to read 50 books over the coming year. 

Beginning January 7, the library will kickoff its 50/50 Book Quest. Participants have until December 31 to read a book from each of the 50 categories including “a classic,” “a book with two or more authors,” “a book set in the past,” and more.  

“We want people to experience authors and genres from a range of different styles,” said Trina Bonman, Associate Director of the Marshall Public Library.

Last year, over 200 signed up and more than 60 completed the 50/50 Book Quest. 

"We are thrilled that so many people challenged themselves to read something new in 2018. I'm looking forward to 2019 with new categories and books to enjoy and share," said Becky Hadley, Lead Circulation Librarian.

The challenge is open to teen and adult patrons of the Marshall Public Library. People who complete the quest will receive a yet to be determined prize. To register you must have a library card with the Marshall Public Library. Participants can register in person at the library, 113 South Garfield Avenue, or online at
