From January 1 – 31, Talbot County Free Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Read Challenge: Books Like Us, sponsored by Simon & Schuster. Books Like Us is a celebration of diversity, harnessing the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book. Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read and participate in the Winter Reading Challenge.
The challenge is to read at least three hours during the month of January and keep track of your reading on the Beanstack site at tcfl.beanstack.org, or through the free mobile app which can be downloaded to your device. Challenge participants will be able to read any books they like during the challenge and will be provided with recommendations from Simon & Schuster’s featured authors along the way. The Winter Reading Challenge is for all ages, so everyone in the family can participate. The grand prize winner will receive a $50 gift card of their choice from either Flying Cloud Booksellers or Amazon.
Top-performing libraries and schools will earn rewards from Simon & Schuster, including book collections and virtual author visits. For more details on the Winter Reading Challenge, visit tcfl.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 410-822-1626.
