IditaRead Winter Reading Challenge-Pauline Haass Public Library


January 18-February 26  Grades 1-6

Race onto our Beanstack app to read and track your progress in our winter reading challenge! Readers will be racing along the IditaRead trail, reaching checkpoints with their reading. Readers will need to complete 27 hours of reading to get through all of the checkpoints and pass the finish line. The first 50 finishers in each age group (grades 1-3 and grades 4-6) receive a prize and all finishers can enter a drawing for a grand prize. Check out our handy guide on how to use the Beanstack app for this program.

Want more ways to win an IditaRead prize? Take part in our musher’s challenge and answer six trivia questions during the IditaRead program, a new fact and question available each week, for a chance to enter a prize drawing. We also have a prize for the racer who finishes the most reading so be sure to log past the 27 hour finishing mark!

Don’t forget to stop by the library and pick up your paper dog to decorate and have run on the library IditaRead map to track your progress!

Register for this program on the Beanstack app or website (as used in our Summer Reading Program). New to Beanstack? Get started here or contact the library for more information. No device? No problem; talk to our staff for a paper option.
