Teen Summer Reading Challenge

READING CHALLENGE GUIDELINES

    • For a Beanstack account.  You can log reading minutes, earn activity badges AND get a mini-notebook OR a set of earbuds just for signing up! (pick up at your favorite branch on your next visit.) Don't forget to download the Beanstack app for easy logging.
    • For events - just for teens! Enjoy virtual workshops and other fun surprises!
    • And while you're at it, make sure you sign up for a library card if you don't have one.  You will need one to checkout and/or download the latest books, music, videos, comic books, etc.
    • We challenge you to read at least 20 minutes every day this summer.  Required reading for school counts - so does magazines, audiobooks, and reading to your siblings!
    • Earn a point for every minute you read (and more points for completing activities).  720 reading points wins you an entry into three random drawings for a $50 gift card to the St. Tammany Parish retailer of your choice.

Be sure to visit the library's Summer Reading Challenge page for additional information!
