2022 Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading 2022


June 6 – August 14

Birth - Grade 12

Summer is here which means it is almost time for Summer Reading! Track how many days you read this summer to build the habit of reading! Read (or be read to) for 20 minutes, an hour, or more--you decide how much you want to read each day. Receive a ticket for a weekly prize drawing for every 5 days of reading. Read for 25 days to take home a free book!  

Visit ahml.beanstack.org to register. Starting June 6, stop by the Summer Reading or Hub desks (for teens in grades 7 - 12) to pick up a registration prize and reading log. 

How it works!
