Current Reading Challenge

Join us on Beanstack in May for our Mental Health Awareness Month Reading Challenge. We challenge you to read one book that makes you happy this month, whether it is an old favorite or something completely new! Participants who earn the completion badge for this challenge may visit the IDEA Lab at the Main Library to create a Mental Health Awareness Month button to proudly wear or display.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Let's Get Started!

A reading challenge is a fun way to challenge yourself to read more, or to read books on a new topic that you may not have considered before! Beanstack allows readers to register for challenges available to their age group, log their reading, and track their progress.  

Reading challenge themes range from our annual Summer Library Club to Mental Health Awareness Month. Sometimes we even host movie-watching or writing challenges. There‚Äôs something for everyone! 

Create a Beanstack account and watch the library calendar for challenge announcements. When a challenge is available for your age group, register and track your progress as you go.
