YOUTH READING PROGRAMS
Our Winter Reading Challenge, 50 to Grow On, is a read-to-me program open to children ages 7 and younger and runs from December 1 - March 31. You will register and log online on Beanstack. We curate 40 books each year and you can add an additional 10 books of your choosing. This program frequently introduces parents to undiscovered authors and children to new genres. Children earn an activity badge for each book read and a completion prize for finishing. They will also receive a virtual raffle ticket for a chance on a stuffed animal. Again, ALL logging must be done on Beanstack by March 31. Completion prizes must be picked up by April 3.
