Winter Reading Challenge
Read for fun and our library could win big!!

From January 1st to January 31st, the Bradford Area Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Books Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster. This is open to readers of ALL AGES!! We challenge our patrons to read as many books as possible during the month of January and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation are encouraging their communities to read a target number of books. Prizes will include book collections and virtual author visits. Ten (10) winning schools or libraries will each get a collection of fifty (50) books from the “Books Like Us” collection.
But the fun doesn't end on January 31! Keep reading until March 21 for a chance to win great individual prizes!! Follow our library on Facebook and Instagram for more updates.
Happy reading, Bradford!
