Winter Challenge


December 1 - January 31


Join us in reading great books and completing activities that are good for our bodies, brains and world!

This family-friendly Winter Challenge incorporates reading goals and activities for all ages, and makes it simple for families to participate together.

Have you participated in a past Winter or Summer Challenge? You can use your same log in information to join the new program. (Hint: Your username is your email address or your phone number. Or, ask our staff to help you find your account or reset your password.)

How it Works

  • Earn badges by reading or completing activities. You earn your first badge just by joining the program!
  • When you earn any five badges, kids and teens win a book. Adults will be entered into a drawing to win a $10 gift card to Half Price Books (35 gift cards available).
  • Track your progress online or download a paper log below.

Help Us Give Back

This year, Beanstack (our online reading log software) has teamed up with Dallas Mavericks owner/businessman/Shark Tank personality Mark Cuban and extended an offer to participating libraries: read a total of 50,000 books and 1 million minutes in January and Cuban will donate $25,000 to First Book, a national charity that provides books to children in need.

Let's do our part and log lots of reading this winter!
