Winter Reading Challenge

2021 Winter Reading Challenge

From January 1st to January 31st, Dover Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Books Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster. We challenge our adult and teen patrons to read at least 1 book during the month and our younger patrons to read at least 1 hour. Keep track of your reading on our Beanstack site at doverlibrary.beanstack.org. Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books.

Prizes for participating libraries 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. Happy reading, Dover!

Books Like Us

Books Like Us is a celebration of diversity, harnessing the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book. This Winter, participating communities are invited to explore these books, from authors spanning an array of diverse backgrounds.
