Winter Reading Challenge

January 14–February 14, 2023

Who doesn’t love to cuddle up in a warm blanket with a favorite book during the cold winter months?

This year we are challenging all readers to read and log at least four hours during our Winter Reading Challenge program. Participants can read or listen to books from any source, such as the library’s digital or physical collections, your friends or a Little Free Library in the area.

To participate in our winter reading challenge, you can create an individual or family account and track your progress online using the Beanstack website or mobile app (see sidebar for more information). You can also track your progess using our printable reading log, which can also be picked up at the library.

If you complete the 4-hour reading challenge, you will be entered into a grand prize drawing.
