Bud Werner Library has been a proud recipient of prizes for the first two years of the program in 2018 and 2019. From January 1st to January 31st, the Bud Werner Memorial Library will participate in Beanstack’s Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Mark Cuban. We challenge our patrons to read at least 200,019 minutes during the month and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at steamboatlibrary.beanstack.org. Hundreds of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. If we reach the collective goal, "Shark Tank" investor Mark Cuban will donate $35,000 to expand access to the resources we offer within the community.
