Summer 2024: Adventure Begins At Your Library

Summer Reading Challenge

We have two ways to log reading this year, Beanstack and traditional paper logging. If you do not have a Beanstack account, start here! If you already have a Beanstack account, simply visit the Challenges page to sign-up. For paper logging, please visit the library to sign-up and receive your log. 

This year, there will be a raffle at the end of the challenge for a variety of Grand Prizes. Each age group will have their own set of prizes to choose from. As you read your way through the summer, you'll earn virtual tickets to go into the prize drawing of your choice. The more you read, the better your chances to win! Winners will be selected and contacted after the challenge has ended.
