From January 1 to January 31, Beaman Library is participating in Beanstack’s Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Lerner Publishing Group. "Read for a Better World" encourages readers of all ages to explore diversity, empathy, and action through literature. Our community has unlimited access to Lerner’s “Read for a Better World” themed books for the month of January!
Beaman Library challenges each of our patrons to read at least 30 minutes per day during the month of January to help us reach our community goal of 10,000 minutes read! The reading you record in Beanstack can be related to the diversity, empathy, and action through literature theme but it doesn't have to be!
Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation are encouraging their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. Top-performing libraries and schools will earn prizes from Lerner Publishing Group, including book collections, signed books, and virtual author visits. Beaman Library will also award prizes to the child, teen, and adult who log the most number of minutes read during the month of January!
