Adult Winter Reading Challenge

January 4th - February 28th

Winter is for reading! It's the perfect time to cozy up with a stack of good books. When you join our online Winter Reading Challenge, you'll receive a little prize* just for registering, and you get to unlock fun virtual badges as you log the time you spend reading.  If you complete the challenge (16 or more hours during January and February) we have an additional treat for you! We encourage readers to choose books and stories from an array of diverse authors and topics: stretch out and find a book about a person or culture outside your personal experience! Make yourself a cup of hot cocoa, grab your fuzzy blanket and settle in for a cozy Winter Read! Reading time may include time spent reading to children and/or listening to audiobooks.

You will track your progress online with or Beanstack Winter Reading Challenge Website (website will be working starting January 4th) or by downloading the Beanstack Tracker app. Logging reading minutes is really easy using the app! It even includes a reading timer!

*Registration prize is a coupon for a free 8 oz. hot cocoa from Lop’s Pop Stop (while supplies last) and a pair of warm winter gloves.

**Completion prize is a set of charming bookplates to personalize your own books, and a coupon for a free Bread Twist donated by Domino's Pizza!
