For Children, Teens, and Adults

Your challenge is to read at least ten hours between January 1st and February 14th  and log those minutes at  https://hillsidelibrary.beanstack.org/For each hour logged, you will earn a badge.

When you have earned ten Logging badges you will be eligible for one of our grand prizes. Each person that completes the program will be awarded a small prize. Earn a small prize just for signing up!

Read or listen to the book, magazine, or newspaper of your choice.  E-Books count too!

Preschoolers:  Parents keep track of the time spent reading to your child.  Post the minutes at the https://hillsidelibrary.beanstack.org/ page you set up for the child.

Ten hours of reading may seem like a lot but reading for just 15 minutes a day, earns one badge every four days and easily completes this reading challenge with plenty of time to spare.

For fun, earn Activity badges and Review badges too.

Registration begins Wednesday, December 30th.   January 1st is the first day to log minutes. 

The library has set a community goal of 10,000 reading minutes for this reading program.  Help us to meet our goal!
