Community Reading Challenges

Calling all K-12th graders! The Library has teamed up with the PTOs to create a reading challenge. Our goal is to read 10,000 books and so far y’all have read 2,000. We’re 20% of the way there!

You can register on beanstack by visiting our site or by downloading the beanstack app. 


Read Woke is a challenge created by Cicely Lewis. She says, “A woke book must inform about a disenfranchised group, challenge the status quo, and have a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group.” Learn more about where the challenge began.

Read woke books and earn badges in beanstack. Don’t forget to log your reading minutes!
