Summer Reading Challenge Begins!
Summer Reading Challenge · JUNE 1 -JULY 30
READING COLORS YOUR WORLD! Summer Reading Challenge is our fun reading program designed to engage all age groups in exploring new ideas, books, & activities. As you read & participate in activities, you are eligible to unlock badges & prizes. The best way to track your progress is through our Beanstack app or website. Not comfortable with the technology? That’s okay, stop in for a physical book log! Read 2 hours per week to earn a variety of prizes. The more you read, the more prizes you win!
WHY JOIN THE SUMMER READING CHALLENGE? For kids, it prevents the infamous “summer slide” of learning loss. Research shows that kids who participate in library summer reading programs score higher on
reading achievement tests than their non-participating peers when the new school year starts.
Summer Reading is NOT just for kids, the Challenge encourages adults to take some “me-time” to stretch out with a great read, whether it’s illuminating & educational, or eerie & escapist. Plus any reading you do with a child, counts toward YOUR hours!
WE HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU! If you have trouble setting up or accessing your account or have any other questions, please contact us at 815-895-2500, by email, or through our website.
