Adult Summer Reading Challenge – 2024

This summer, we invite you to join us on a self-care journey as we encourage you to read, relax, and reflect. Throughout the reading period, you will earn tickets for the time you read and programs attended, which can be used to claim our fabulous grand prize: a Kindle Scribe bundle.

To make things interesting, we challenge you to read at least 1,200 minutes during the summer (about 20 minutes per day) and track that time in Beanstack. Don’t forget to share your progress on social media using #billericalibrarysummerreading2024, and be sure to tag us!

Let’s rediscover our love of reading this summer and try to read 500,000 minutes as a community!
