Staff member Samantha Street - who is overseeing the competition's launch - said: "We're trying to encourage readers to explore all genres held by the library.

"I'm enjoying reading more non-fiction as part of this challenge and already we've had two extra readers who have sent in reviews. I'm also trying to read books connected to our other displays, so I have books coming out of my ears!"
