Children’s Summer Reading
This summer, find your voice! Track your reading, complete activities, and visit the library to earn badges and rewards.
We've created two different challenges so that everyone has a chance to participate, but the best option is to do both!
Visitor’s Challenge: Kids can learn independence and responsibility by filling out their own paper calendar--all they have to do is mark the days that they read for more than five minutes. Then, when they come to the library, they will get raffle tickets for weekly prize drawings and paper shapes to add to their streamer to show off how much they're reading.
Virtual Challenge: Sign up for Beanstack at athollibrary.beanstack.org. Beanstack is a fun and engaging website and mobile app that kids can use to track their reading minutes! With digital badges, grand prize raffles, and a counter that keeps track of your reading streak, Beanstack is perfectly designed to motivate readers to keep reading!
Both challenges include a Brag Tag necklace. All summer, kids can earn beads and charms by attending programs and reaching reading milestones.
Summer Reading 2023 runs from June 23 to August 18.
