The Library challenges kids ages 0-17 to see if they can read or listen to books every day from June 1 to August 31. Readers can create their own daily reading goal, with a minimum of 15 minutes each day, to earn great reading rewards.
For every 30 days of reading, kids and teens can earn a free book from the library or $10 to spend at Steamboat's only independent book store, Off the Beaten Path. Fast Math: that's a total of $30 to spend just for reading this summer! Visit the library to get a $10 certificate to redeem at OTBP. New since last year, you must have the $10 certificate from the library to redeem. Please check the OTBP website for store hours and to pre-order books, if needed. OTBP store credit will expire on September 30, 2023.
1. Log your child's reading online using the Bud Werner Library's Beanstack page. You can download the free Beanstack Tracker app, available for free on iOS devices or on Google Play. Beanstack also recommends books for young readers based on the young person's individual interests.
2. Log your reading on the paper brochure available at the Library. Or download the PDF versions of the Reading Log, in English or Spanish, at the bottom of the page to print at home.
