Winter Reading Challenge | All the Feels

Experience all the feels this winter! Learn about the history of emojis, explore the importance of emotions, and discover fun activities to express yourself fully. Earn fun emoji-themed badges for logging your reading, completing activities, and submitting book reviews.

Read With Us! January 16 - February 11

The theme for this year’s Winter Reading Challenge – #AllTheFeels – encourages you to express yourself, learn about the history of emojis, and explore your emotions through reading and writing. We challenge you to read for at least 25 days this winter. 

How to Participate

Register your whole family at Beanstack to track your reading! You can do this on your computer or on Beanstack’s mobile app. Each family member can sign up for their reading program to start logging their progress. If you have participated in any of our previous summer or winter challenges, you likely already have an account.

Once you are registered, just start reading to earn tickets for a drawing at the end of the challenge! And the prizes are great!

How to Earn Tickets

You’ll earn one ticket for every five days you read and a fun prize for reading at least 15 days. You can earn up to five tickets during the challenge – that’s five chances to win!

What to Read

Don’t know where to start? You are welcome to read whatever you wish during the program, but if you need a little inspiration, we’re here to help. Visit your librarian and they’ll be glad to make some suggestions. If you can’t come into the library, just give us a call! 

Complete the activity badges for extra fun!

What are the prizes?

You could win one of five prizes! Enter to win a hot chocolate and warmie basket, All About Ohio basket, a lap pillow for your book or tablet, Little Kid Lit Dino COSI Kit, or gift card bundle to Starbucks and Books-a-Million! Each ticket you earn gives you an entry into the drawing. The drawing will take place on February 16, 2023.
