Reading Challenges

Our Reading Programs allow families and readers of all ages to log and read books for prizes and badges. These programs are offered through Beanstack, which is our free online service that offers book and activity logging, recommendations and book reviews. Beanstack will automatically direct you to the appropriate activities based on your age. Show us how much you love to read by participating in one of our programs!
