Our 2021 Summer Reading Challenge is a little over a month away. Even though all of our summer events will be virtual again this year, kids will be able to earn free prizes by participating June 1-August 31, 2021, regardless of whether they are using the Beanstack app or a paper log to track their reading time and fun-filled activities.
In the meantime, you can download the app, create an account, and view our other reading challenges: 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten and 100 Books Before Graduation.
