Warm up with a good book for our winter reading challenge.

Winter reading runs for five weeks from January 1 through February 5, 2023. Register on Beanstack starting Monday, December 19.


The Details: 

  • This program is open to all ages and broken into two groups: 0-12 and 13+.
  • We are using Beanstack to log your reading minutes to earn badges & the chance to win prizes. Parents can read to their kids and log for them. Any type of reading counts: being read to, audiobooks, graphic novels, magazines, newspapers, etc.
  • For kids who read 2 hours in a week, there will be a weekly drawing where they can win a bag of books (book selection is random and varies each week). 
  • There will also be the popular word of the week hidden in the children's room each week, so additional tickets can be earned by participating and entering the word in Beanstack.
  • Winners of the ticketed drawings will be notified by email on Monday, February 6. Prize winners will have 10 business days to pick up the prize before another winner is chosen.

  • Grand Prize: Bruins hockey puck signed by #37 Patrice Bergeron. You must complete Winter Reading to be eligible.
