Adult Summer Reading Challenge

SRP 2024 Read Renew Repeat Adult Banners 1

The Summer Reading Challenge will begin on May 28th, but you are able to register in advance. Please note that any reading logged before May 28th will not count towards the Summer Reading Challenge.

This page is primarily for Adults. We also offer a Teen Summer Reading Challenge, as well as a Children's (Ages 0-11) Summer Reading Challenge.

How the Challenge Works

1. Read a book and log it on Beanstack starting May 28.
2. See your badge appear in color after logging on Beanstack, or fill it out on a paper log.
3. Once you read 3 books, you can come to the Adult Circulation Desk to redeem a prize!
4. Read 10 or more books to be entered into the drawing for a Summer Reading prize bundle.

The Summer Reading Program ends July 31, and all reading logs must be returned to the library or logged on Beanstack by then to redeem prizes and to count for the Grand Prize Drawing.
