You'll want to particpate in three all-ages reading challenges every year:
- Winter Reading Challenge - January
- Summer Reading Challenge - June & July
- Fall Reading Challenge - October
Kids birth to Kindergarten get an additional year-round reading challenge – 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.
Print books, ebooks, audiobooks and graphic novels are part of the Reading Challenges. Our digital collections at Libby and Hoopla are always available and provide immediate access to thousands of great reads. If you want help finding amazing reads, sign up for Browsing Just for You and a librarian will select books for you based on your interests.
Winter & Fall Challenges
The Winter and Fall Reading Challenges are 1-month challenges that reward everyone who reads 3 books during the month. Prizes available while supplies last.
Participating in the Winter or Fall Challenge is super easy:
- Read at least 3 great books during the month
- Log your books in Beanstack
Summer Reading Challenge
Take part in the Summer Reading Challenge in June and July! All ages are welcome. Kids birth to 12 years old earn a prize for every 2 hours of reading (up to 8 hours). Teens and adults will earn two great prizes for reading 6 books in June and July. Prizes available while supplies last.
A trip to the library, gallery, bookmobile or Adventuremobile is a great way to keep brains active and entertained with performers, activities, art and reading.
