At STPL, we believe in the importance of lifelong learning and reading.  Our reading challenges support our goal to make reading engaging and fun.

STPL offers reading challenges to readers of all ages throughout the year.  These challenges include our annual Summer Reading Challenge and Winter Reading Challenge. Participants in these challenges can earn points, virtual badges, and real prizes for reading and completing fun activities! Even if we don't currently have an active challenge for your age group, you can still track your reading year-round using Beanstack. Beanstack is a free online service that allows readers to log their reading, read and submit book reviews, and receive book recommendations.  Continue reading to see which challenges are currently active and to learn more about Beanstack.
