Summer 2021 Library Challenge

Log your progress from Saturday, June 26 – August 7

This year’s theme, Reading Colors Your World, offers an opportunity to be bold, get creative and color outside the lines a little. Kids AND adults are invited to participate!

Pre-registration on the Beanstack App or at opens on Monday, June 14. Readers have from Saturday, June 26 until Saturday, August 7, 2021 to log their reading, earn 100 points, and complete the challenge. The ultimate goal is to read as many days as possible and keep those literacy skills sharp throughout the summer. Registration is rolling, so you may join in the fun at any point in the program!

Participants from babies through 12th grade will receive a free book when they register thanks to generous donations from Kennebunk Savings Bank, York School Department, Kids Free to Grow, WIC and York County Community Action Corporationt! Plus, each step of the way there will be opportunities for all ages to do fun activities and earn raffle tickets for a chance to win one of our grand prizes. 

Thank you to our 2021 sponsors. Please note this list is still growing!

Our summer reading program would not be possible without the generous contributions from all of our community sponsors. Donations are still rolling in! We wish to thank our friends at Kennebunk Savings Bank, York School Department, Kids Free to Grow, WIC, York County Community Action Corporation, Center for Wildlife, Kona Ice of the Seacoast, and Smitty’s Cinema for their support.
