From January 1st to January 31st, the Bellevue Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Simon & Schuster. 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.
We challenge our patrons to read at least 10 hours during the month and keep track of your reading here on our Beanstack site at bellevue.beanstack.org or app ("Beanstack Tracker" in your app store).
Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. Top-performing libraries and schools will earn rewards from Simon & Schuster, including book collections and virtual author visits. The library will also be drawing for SIX $25 gift card winners--plus, THREE special mystery awards!
Happy reading, Bellevue!
