Winter Reading Program

Winter Reading Challenge 2022
January 1, 2022 to January 31, 2022
Each January, we challenge the community to read toward a minute goal for our library so kids can win prizes.

Welcome to the fifth annual Winter Reading Challenge! We join hundreds of other schools and libraries across the United States as participants in this exciting event. We challenge you to read at least 200,022 minutes during the month of January and track that time in Beanstack. Share your progress on social media using #WinterRead2022!

National Prizes

This year the national Winter Reading Challenge 2022, "Read for a Better World," is sponsored by Lerner Publishing Group. With your reading minutes, you can help our library to win prizes including book collections, signed books, and virtual children's author visits!

Local Prizes

We will host four weekly drawings throughout the month of January. If you have been logging your reading in Beanstack, you are already entered to win great raffle prizes from our local business sponsors:

Although the prizes are reserved for young participants, ages 0-17, this is an all-ages program. Adults are welcome to log their reading minutes to help us earn these great prizes for our local youth. There may be a few surprise giveaways for the adults, along the way!
Happy reading, Steamboat Springs!
