Summer Mystery Reading Challenge

Summer Mystery Reading Challenge

ICC students, faculty, and staff have the opportunity to win a $10 ICC Bookstore gift card this summer by completing the ICC Library Summer Mystery Reading Challenge!

This year we are challenging you to read six mystery stories each in different sub-genres of the overall mystery genre. While most mysteries can fit into more than one sub-genre we ask that you read six different stories to complete the challenge. 


To participate all you need to do is pick up your Summer Mystery Reading Challenge card from the library (either East Peoria or Peoria campuses)! Once you log all six of your mysteries and have put your personal info under the reading log, bring your challenge card to a librarian and we will enter you to win an ICC Bookstore gift card. The challenge runs from now until August 1st. Turn in your card by the end of the day on the 1st to be eligible to win!


Struggling to find something to read? We have compiled a list of popular mysteries from 15 different sub-genres that can be found under the Reading Suggestions tab on this guide.


Still not finding something you like? We are here to help! Ask a librarian in person, via 24/7 online chat, or email us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
