Winter Reading Challenge

From January 1st to January 31st, the Monticello Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Book Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster (S&S). We challenge our patrons to read at least 20 books each during the month and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at

Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. Prizes will include book collections and virtual author visits. Ten (10) winning schools or libraries will each get a collection of fifty (50) books from the “Books Like Us” collection.

This challenge is open to readers of all ages!
