Winter Reading Challenge

Adult & Teen Winter Reading Challenge


“Perched on Reading,” Great River Regional Library's 2024 Winter Reading Challenge begins Tuesday, January 2, and runs through Thursday, February 29.


The challenge incentivizes readers to build winter reading habits. It is designed primarily for teens and adults and is open to anyone in the 6th grade or older. Each of the 32 branch libraries in the GRRL system will have prize drawings for participants. All book lovers need do is register for the program at a branch library, on the GRRL site, or on the Beanstack Tracker app. Readers can log their winter reading at or in the app. 


By downloading and using the app, readers can keep track of their reading, get book recommendations, and earn online badges to help make reading a habit. Also, readers will count the minutes they spend reading, so any amount of daily reading will make participants eligible for online badges and prizes. Each library branch will have drawings for special “Perched on Reading” mugs and winter hats.
