Summer Reading for Teens

Summer Reading 2021

Teens, this summer we challenge you to read! And listen! Join us online with Beanstack (website or app) to challenge yourself and compete against friends. Log the days that you have read or listened to a book. You'll earn badges and be entered to win raffle prizes!

To Participate:

  • Please be in grades 7-12

How long do you have to read or listen per day? At least ten minutes, so break out a book when you're in the car, cooling off in the pool, walking to a friend's house, waiting for dinner to be ready — opportunities for reading are everywhere.
