Reading Challenges

This Fall, we are offering reading challenges for all ages through Beanstack. If you have a Beanstack account from summer, just log in and register for the challenge. Get more information about Beanstack or contact the library for assistance.

Other Voices Reading Challenges
Challenge yourself to read about cultures and perspectives other than your own! Through reading, we can learn about the lives of others, diverse situations, identities, and cultural norms and expectations.  If you are an expansive reader, you might find some new titles in our suggested reading lists. Click below for more information on challenges for each age group.

Early Learning Express
September 14th through December 19, 2020

Children ages 0-6 can participate in our Early Learning Express challenge, which provides a wide variety of learning activities for children and caregivers to do together.  The activities correspond with our Storytime and Skills Lab programs and we especially encourage those who are participating in these programs to participate in this challenge. However, participation in these programs is not required for the Early Learning Express challenge.
