2022 Summer Reading: Kids Summer Reading Program

Read Beyond the Beaten Path this summer!

Anamosa Library

Overview

For kids grades K - 6!

Choose between tracking either the time you spend reading OR how many books you read (you will choose one of these two challenges on Beanstack).  Earn raffle tickets for every hour or book you read and earn the chance to win one of our 5 grand prize baskets!

Summer Reading will be on Beanstack this year! A companion log will be available if your child prefers to track that way, however, all reading must be entered into Beanstack to earn and enter raffle tickets.

Once you have reached 25 hours or 25 books... congratulations--- you have officially finished summer reading! We will give you a certificate of completion and you may choose a free book from the Friends of the Library Book Nook!  If you keep reading and get to 50 hours read or 50 books read, you will get one of the many colored “Summer Reading Champion Lives Here” lawn signs! 

This summer, we want to paint the town red….and blue, purple, green, and yellow with our Summer Reading Champion signs!
