Winter Reading Challenge for Youth & Teens, January 1 - 31

December 22, 2021

January 1 - 31

From January 1st to January 31st, Portsmouth Public Library offers a Winter Reading Challenge through Beanstack, sponsored by Lerner Publishing Group.

Read for a Better World encourages readers of all ages to explore diversity, empathy, and action through literature. Our community has unlimited access to Lerner’s “Read for a Better World” published book titles for the month of January through the challenge!

We challenge our readers under 18 to read at least 200 books collectively during the month, and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site.

Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation are participating - the top peformers will earn prizes from Lerner Publishing Group, including book collections, signed books, and virtual author visits!

Have questions or need help connecting to Beanstack? Ask at the Youth Services desk!

Happy reading, Portsmouth!
