Winter Reading Challenge is Now Open!!!

The State Wide Vermont Winter Reading Challenge is open now through the end of February!  The new year is a time for reflection and reinvigoration. What better way to do that than to cozy up with inspiring books this winter? The challenge is open to readers of all ages. Participants can read books of their choosing, log minutes, and earn digital badges.

We encourage readers to choose books and stories from an array of diverse authors and topics, and we invite you to explore books from bestselling and acclaimed authors including Cozbi Cabrera, Sharon Draper, Stuart Gibbs, Stephen Graham Jones, Hena Khan, Debbie Ohi, Christina Hammonds Reed and Rebecca Roanhorse. Each of these authors will participate in a virtual event at a library or school that achieves the highest level of participation from their community. For more information check out Simon & Schuster’s Books Like Us.

To get started visit the link above and follow the instructions to register. Share about your participation on social media (please tag us!) using #WinterRead2021 and you could be featured on one of Beanstack’s weekly roundup stories on Facebook and Instagram.
