Are You Up to the Challenge?
Can you read or listen to books for at least 20 minutes a day, every day? If you accept the challenge, simply record each day that you read for 20 minutes or more on your challenge card or log your reading online at kpl.beanstack.org. When you have completed 15 days (they do not need to be consecutive days), bring your challenge card to the library for a reward or let the library staff know you earned a reward online.
There are 92 possible reading days from Wednesday, June 1 through the challenge’s end on Wednesday, August 31. You may complete four, 15-day reading segments within those 92 days, so you can earn up to four rewards!
Play Online, Too!
For the first year ever, KPL is offering an online reading challenge, where you can log your daily reading, view book lists and get book recommendations, and earn badges for completing learning activities. There are 5 learning tracks in which you can earn a digital badge and a sticker for your challenge card: Lead, Create, Read, Explore, Move. Earn all 5 badges and get a special prize!
Claiming Your Reward
When it’s time to claim a reward you can either
• bring your challenge card to any KPL location to report your progress
• let staff know you earned a reward online
Staff will record your progress and give you a prize.
Please report all game play at least 15 minutes before the library closes. All rewards must be redeemed no later than Wednesday, August 31 at 5 pm. No exceptions.
