Winter Reading Challenge

Sycamore Library Winter Reading Challenge


This challenge is a fun program designed to engage all age groups in exploring new ideas, books and activities. As you read books and engage in the activities, you are eligible to win badges and prizes. The best way to track your progress is through the Beanstack app or web site. Beginning December 15 through February 23, you can start recording your reading time and participate in the activities, located exclusively in our online winter reading software, Beanstack!

Simply register one time to participate in library sponsored reading programs and activities all year round(already registered, simply login to your existing account).

How Do I Start?

Login to your already existing Beanstack account OR create a new Beanstack account, if you have not done so already.

Parents can create a family account with all family members rather than create accounts for their children. In Beanstack, you can view the available activities, enter the books you have read, write book reviews and more. You will receive digital badges as you progress with your reading and activities; as well as an entry into the grand prize drawing. Visit the Beanstack website or login through the app.

Beanstack app available for iOS and Android.
