Adult Summer Reading Challenge 2022

Hi Readers! Welcome to the Adult Summer Reading Challenge 2022. We're going off the beaten path this summer! The challenge starts July 5 and runs through August 19. We'll have both your standard "read and review" and some fun programs (activities) to attend. You can earn badges on Beanstack for reading books and submitting reviews, as well as attending our activities. As you earn badges you will receive virtual tickets that you can submit for three prize drawings. There will be six weeks to log your books and numerous activities to attend, which means you will have plenty of opportunities to earn virtual tickets.
Sign up for the Challenge on Beanstack here. Signing up earns you one ticket! You can also download the Beanstack app to your device.
How it works: Join or rejoin Beanstack and register for the Adult Summer Reading Challenge. 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 successfully read, review, and submit one book every week (total of six reviews), then you'll be eligible for the Completion Badge - which earns you FIVE tickets. You do not need to attend any activities to complete this challenge.
Prize packs: As you earn badges you will receive virtual tickets that you can submit for three prize drawings. Enter your virtual tickets by August 19. Prize drawings will be on August 22.
