Program Description

Event Details

Winter is the perfect time to cozy up with a book or try a new activity! Sign up and participate online for the 2023 All Ages Winter Reading Challenge with our Beanstack webpage and mobile app. If you prefer paper, a downloadable form is available via the News & Updates section of our website. 

To participate, track any kind of reading by minutes or complete certain activities. Any 10 out of 20 reading and activity badges earns you a Winter Reading Champ digital badge, but you can keep going. We're trying to reach 150,000 minutes of winter reading, in honor of our 150th anniversary year! 

One of the activity badges challenges you to complete any 5 activities from our checklist of 150 Things to Do at the Rock Island Public Library. The checklist is attached to this event, or you can pick up a printed copy at your Rock Island Library!
