Current Challenges

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten (Ages 0-5)

Embark on your own personal journey!!!  Enjoy reading 1,000 books with your little ones! Log reading and earn badges all along the way.  If you start when your child is 3 years old just reading them one book a night, by the time they turn 5 years old, you will have read 1,000 books to your child.  Research shows that parents who engage their child through early literacy, those children perform at a higher level once they are in school.

100 Books Before College (7th – 12th grades)

If you are in grades 7th through 12th you can now sign up for this awesome program! Earn a prize for every 25 books you read. If you read all 100 books you will get an extra special prize!

Winter Reading (All Ages)

Winter Reading starts on Monday, November 22 and ends on January 31.  

You can register on Beanstack, just like for Summer Reading, and track your progress.  You also have the option to sign up in the library and pick up a paper tracker.  You can sign up in Benton downstairs at the Youth Services desk or upstairs near the meeting room.  In Bryant, you can sign up at either the Circulation desk or the Youth Services desk. 

Once you have read (or been read to!) for 40 days, you can bring in your paper tracker or show us your Beanstack completion badge. You will then receive either a prize book or a book buck.
