Adult Summer Reading Challenge

Hi Readers! Welcome to the Adult Summer Reading 2020 Challenge. We're changing things up a little and going virtual this year. The challenge starts July 7 and runs through August 21. It's your standard "read and review." You will be able to earn tickets for whatever you contribute. You can submit your earned tickets for 3 drawings. There will be six weeks, which means you get six opportunities to earn a ticket. Prizes will be for Barrington businesses.

Sign up for the Challenge here. Signing up earns you one ticket! You can also download the Beanstack app to your device.

How it works: Read a book. Enter your book (title and author) along with a short review. You may submit up to one review per week. Each review will earn you one ticket that you can enter into the drawings. If you read, review, and submit ONE BOOK during each week, then you'll be eligible for the Completion Badge - which earns you FIVE TICKETS.


Email us any questions (including any other format submissions) at Be sure to visit the Kids page and the Teens page for their Summer Reading Challenges and activities.
