Summer Reading for Everyone

We invite everyone to join us for the 2020 Summer Reading Challenges! Registration for children is open and they can start logging their reading on June 15th!  Registration for teens and adults will begin on June 15th.

This year we will be using Beanstack software to track reading minutes, which you can use in a web browser or via the Beanstack Tracker App.

For children, we’ll bring back the beads and necklaces from last year! Every hour will earn you 1 bead, and every 5 hours will earn you a special bead. Complete activities to earn additional special beads and be entered into a weekly drawing. Reading 15 hours by July 31st will complete the program, although you can keep reading to earn extra beads if you like.

Sign up today for our virtual kickoff event featuring the Science Tellers!

Teens (ages 11 to 18) are invited to take part in the Teen Summer Reading Challenge.  When you log your reading, you’ll have a chance to enter weekly drawings for great prizes.  You may use Beanstack or request a paper log.

Adults, we invite you to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Challenge!  You’ll receive a prize if you read for 16 hours and you can read more to enter the grand prize drawings.  You may use Beanstack or request a paper log.
