Children's Winter Reading Challenge 2023

You can still pick up Reading Rewards through April 29

Children's Winter Reading Challenge
January 3 - March 31, 2023

We had a total of 512 kids enrolled in our 2023 Children's Winter Reading Challenge, and together they logged over 15,000 days that they read or listened to books! When reading becomes a daily habit, everyone benefits!

Some important information:

  • The last day to LOG reading in Beanstack was Friday, March 31. That is the last day that COUNTS in earning rewards.
  • You can still bring your reading logs to the Children's desk AFTER March 31, and we can log your child's reading retroactively, up to March 31.
  • You can still pick up reading rewards at the Children's Desk up through Saturday, April 29, while supplies last.
    (For some rewards, when we run out, we're out!)

So finish up your reading, and hurry in to pick up your reading rewards at the Children's Desk.

And if your child participated, please take this short survey to help us plan for future programs. Thanks!
