Thanksgiving Read-A-Thon

Thanksgiving Read-A-Thon!

You’ve got the week off from school! We hope you enjoy some reading during your break. To help you read and have fun, we’re running a Thanksgiving Read-A-Thon for kids ages 0-17! Preregistration opens November 14th.

We’re using Beanstack, the same platform we used for summer reading and Kids Vote 2020. If you already participated in one of those programs, you can use the same login. If you’re new to our reading challenges and programs, you can sign up and get started in the Beanstack app or through the webpage.

Log all the reading you do this week and encourage your friends to log their reading too. You’ll earn some little prizes along the way, and if, together, everyone meets the community reading goal during this challenge, Librarian Erin has a surprise for you!

Ages 0-5: To finish this challenge, you only need to read 2 books each day, but we included bonus badges and prizes in case you want to read more! If everyone in this challenge reads 150 books or more together, Erin will do a bonus story time! And remember, you can continue to log your reading after you earn all the badges.

Ages 6-17: To finish this challenge, you only need to read 20 minutes each day, but we included bonus badges and prizes in case you want to read more! If everyone in this challenge reads 1,500 minutes or more together, Erin will do something silly at the library. Click here to vote for the silly thing Erin will do! And remember, you can continue to log your reading after you earn all the badges.
