January 1-31 (ages 0-11)

From January 1 to January 31, New Berlin Public Library is participating in Beanstack’s Fifth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Lerner Publishing Group. "Read for a Better World" encourages readers of all ages to explore the world around them by reading books on a wide variety of topics.

For every reading and activity badge you complete, you'll earn a virtual raffle ticket that you can then submit for a chance to win gift card prizes! Winners will be notified through their Beanstack contact information, so please double check that the correct information is listed. Prizes will be held until the end of February.

Happy reading, New Berlin!

This challenge encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before kindergarten.  Once of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day.  Read together! Log the books you read and every 100 books read, you'll earn a badge.  Stop in the library and let us know so we can add your child's name to our special wall.  After reading 1000 books, your child will receive a prize book!
