What's new at the library:

Non-Fiction Reading Challenge (Grades K-5)

Stop by the library any time to pick up a paper form to complete this challenge or try our Beanstack platform!

Beanstack is an online reading tracker that we use for challenges year round. Right now we have 1,000 Books before Kindergarten, this non-fiction challenge, and 52 Books in 52 Weeks. There are so many fun and useful features with our online program with badges to earn, activities to complete, and cool ideas for further non-fiction exploration. Prizes will be awarded anytime in November for the paper and online reading challenges.
