2016 LOYOLA SUMMER BOOK LEAGUE
READ TO PLAY, PLAY TO WIN!
JUNE 16 – AUGUST 16, 2016

Sponsored by Loyola University Chicago Libraries

Welcome to the 2016 Loyola Summer Book League! The Book League is a reading competition for Loyola faculty and staff. Keep track of the pages you read this summer between June 16 & August 16. Participants will compete individually, but it’s more fun with more people! Be sure to encourage your colleagues to participate and find out what they’re reading. We want this to be a fun and social summer, so we plan to have a few in-person gatherings as well (more information forthcoming). Check out the details below to see what’s new for 2016. Thanks for playing!
