Pre-Register Now for Winter Reading Program 2021 - January 1-31, 2021
We're kicking off an all-new Winter Reading Program for the month of January! We will be joining Books Like Us, a nationwide reading program hosted by book publisher Simon & Schuster, featuring books by diverse authors and voices from different backgrounds. You will be able to join our Winter Reading Program this year through the Beanstack app or site. If you have not joined Beanstack yet, it's free and easy to do so. With Beanstack, you can easily log your reading, earn badges, and enter for prizes all from your computer or mobile device. Beanstack is available for download on iOS and Android. Pre-register NOW to earn your registration badge, then start reading and logging your activities starting January 1.
Winter Reading will also include activity challenges, including scavenger hunts, family missions, and craft activities to take home. It all starts January 1-31. Watch our website, Facebook, or Instagram for more info.
This year, the same Winter Reading Program will be available to all ages. All will have access to the same activities and challenges. Feel free to choose what you'd like to tackle. You do not have to complete ALL activities to participate. In fact, completing ANY activity will earn you ticket entries for the end-of-program prizes. This year we have a community goal of reaching 30,000 minutes read in one month! Every minute logged will go towards meeting that goal, so log as much as you can!
You will earn tickets for:
- Every hour read (up to 10 hours)
- Every author badge you complete
- Completing at least 3 of 6 scavenger hunts
- Completing at least 6 of 12 wintertime activities
Earn at least 15 total tickets to be guaranteed your choice of 1 of two fun prizes to take home from the library: a Library Logo Campfire Mug & Hot Cocoa Set or a Library Logo Lined Journal & Pen Set. Everyone who enters at least 15 tickets will win a prize to take home. Prizes will be available for pickup in mid-February.
