Welcome to Summer Library Challenge 2021!

To play, log into Beanstack and record any time you finish reading a book or eBook, listening to an audiobook, or attending a library program.

Each book or program will earn you a weekly prize entry, and you can read as much as you want! Entries will roll over from week to week.

Please Note: We will be offering paper entries on a limited basis for those who do not want to participate online. To play in person, please stop by the Ask Us desk to pick up and drop off your paper entry forms. We will NOT be collecting or distributing these via the drive-up window.

This program is open to adults 18+ ONLY.
