100 Books Before High School

Reading all these recommended books can win you prizes! Teens and tweens in grades 4–8 can sign up for the 100 Books Before High School program and earn awesome prizes. Sign up and log books at ahml.beanstack.org.

Just for signing up, you’ll get a cool drawstring backpack. For every 20 books logged, you’ll earn a badge and a free book. Once you reach the summit of Mount 100 Books, you’ll earn a High School Survival Kit designed & built by our Teen Advisory Board, and include a mechanical pencil, mints, a super-pack of sticky notes, and so much more. 

All prize books and High School Survival Kits were generously funded by the Friends of the Library. Participants can only complete the program and earn prizes one time.
