SCI Waymart's library held a Classic Novel Reading Challenge for the month of February 2021. Inmates were invited to read a classic novel and answer a book quiz for an opportunity to receive a Certificate of Completion and a chocolate bar.

Library staff randomly selected a classic novel and the inmates were given four weeks to read it and complete the quiz. Of the 52 inmates who attempted it, 45 successfully completed the reading challenge for an 87 percent pass rate.

Books included Fahrenheit 451, Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf? and Robinson Crusoe.
