Read. Win prizes. Attend virtual events.  

This year’s Winter Reading theme is Alaska! 

Teens and Adults: Earn badges with every 100 minutes you read… each badge you win increases your chance to win one of the weekly drawings for a mystery bag of goodies, and/or the grand prize–a $50 Amazon Gift Card. 

Children: Enter our Children’s Winter Reading program for a chance to win an Alaska-themed gift basket! Sign up in Beanstack and log your minutes from January 1-January 31st. For every 50 minutes you read you’ll earn a badge. At 200 and 400 minutes you get a prize and an entry to the prize basket. Happy reading!
