THE LAST DAY TO LOG YOUR CHILD'S SUMMER READING IN BEANSTACK IS WEDNESDAY, JULY 31!

You or your child can still pick up prizes until August 15, but you will not be able to log any of your child's reading to count towards prizes after Wednesday, July 31, 2019. Go to Bud Werner Library's Beanstack site to backdate any reading that has happened since the start of our program on June 1, 2019.

CAN YOU READ EVERY DAY?

The Library challenges kids ages 0-17 to see if they can read or be read to every day from June 1 to July 31. Readers can create their own daily reading goal, with a minimum of 15 minutes each day. Log your reading on the paper brochure available at the Kids' Desk or online using Beanstack. Make reading your favorite daily habit! 

EARN FREE BOOKS OR OTBP GIFT CERTIFICATES!

For every 20 days that you read, you earn a free book from the library or a $5 gift certificate to Steamboat's only independent book store, Off the Beaten Path. Fast Math: that's a total of 3 free books or $15 just for reading this summer!

PRIZES FROM LOCAL SPONSORS

For those participating on Beanstack, we will hold weekly prize drawings to win free stuff from our local business sponsors: Old Town Hot Springs, Lyon's, Johnny B Good, Elevation Dance Studio, Love Climbing Adventures, Strings Music Festival, and more! Last Prize Drawing: Monday, July 29, 2019.

ERASE YOUR FINES DEADLINE: JULY 31, 2019

Any youth (under the age of 17) signed up for our Summer Reading Program can come in person to the Kids' Desk at the Bud Werner Library by July 31, 2019 to get their overdue library fines waived.
