2020 Summer Reading Challenge

This year's national theme is 'Imagine Your Story', a celebration of fantasy, mythology, and fairy tales. We think this summer is the perfect year to visit a land far, far away. We're excited for the fun to begin on July 6th. This is the first year we will be doing a digital summer reading challenge using Beanstack and there are going to be lots of great prizes. Visit our Beanstack page for more information on signing up. A paper version of the bingo card is available for kids who like to fill in the squares.
