Summer Reading Challenge 2020

Monday, June 15 - Sunday, August 9

Make every minute count this summer! Keep track of your reading and earn special prizes all summer long. Learn how you can complete the entire program online using Beanstack at www.ahml.info/summer. For youth ages 0-18 and their families.

Participating is easy. Keep track of how many minutes you read and record it in your Beanstack account. You can also print out your very own paper log to help you keep track. 

You can read anything you like! As you progress, you will earn virtual badges. With each badge completed, you unlock a special prize or activity. After completing the first five badges, you'll receive a free book of your choice to keep and a raffle ticket for a grand prize drawing. 

Looking for an extra challenge? Continue reading and tracking your progress to earn bonus badges to earn more raffle tickets for the grand prize drawing.

New for 2020! Check out the optional Family Badge for activities your family can enjoy together.

Looking for a good book? Take a look at these booklists compiled by library staff especially for readers looking for interesting, compelling, funny, sad, spooky, serious and all-around great stories!

Make sure to take advantage of the filtering functions on the left side of the booklist page to find the right list for you. These lists are for kids, tweens, teens and their families.

Unlocking Reading Badges in the Summer Reading Challenge will get you a variety of prizes.

Take a photo of how you are enjoying your prizes and fill out a form to add it to the Summer Reading Challenge Gallery on the ahml.info/summer page.

It can be a photo of your completed craft, a picture of you learning a new skill that was unlocked or even a photo of you reading!
