2020 MCL Summer Reading Challenge:


* June 15th – August 15th *

It’s been fun, but our 2020 Summer Library Program is coming to a close. You still have a few days to log those reading minutes and get entered into our grand prize drawings! Due to the pandemic, the program looks a little different this year but there’s still time to get involved. Click HERE to get started or continue reading for full details.

Due to the impact COVID-19 has had on our community, we have decided to support local businesses and organizations that have so generously supported *us* in the past. While all challenge participants will earn a shot at our grand prize — an Orion SpaceProbe Telescope, the majority of all other rewards and prizes will be gift cards and purchases from local stores and restaurants.

We have challenges for four different age groups.  

  • Preschool Challenge for ages 0-4 
  • School Age Challenge for ages 5-12
  • Teen Challenge for ages 13-17
  • Adult Challenge for ages 18+

The bulk of our summer reading program will be done online using the reading-log platform, Beanstack. With Beanstack you can keep track of your reading, earn online badges to help make your reading a habit, and be entered into drawings and raffles.
