Beanstack Reading Challenges

What is Beanstack?

Beanstack is an app and desktop site that allows users to log the amount of time they read each day to earn colorful badges and help build healthy habits.

23 in 23 Challenge

Starting in January, the Park County Libraries are launching a new year-long reading program called the 23 in 23 Challenge, which encourages participants to read 23 genres in the year 2023. Those interested in participating can sign up on Beanstack or stop by the library to grab a challenge sheet to fill in titles as they read each genre. Once every slot is filled, participants will turn in challenge sheets as entries for prizes! Participants can complete challenge sheets as many times as they like before the year ends.

Monthly Reading Challenge

In response to the popularity of Park County Libraries’ Beanstack app, the library system has decided to launch a new themed reading challenge each month for patrons to complete. Each challenge will run from the first to last day of that month and feature a set of exclusive badges centered around a theme.

This month:

Experience all the feels this winter! Explore the importance of emotions and discover fun activities to express yourself fully. From Jan. 1-31, Park County Library system is participating in All the Feels, a reading challenge sponsored by Beanstack. We challenge our community to read and log at least 620 minutes (20 minutes a day) during the challenge. Earn fun emoji-themed badges for logging your reading, completing activities, and submitting book reviews!
