Teen Summer Reading Experience

Read. Record. Win.  June 1 – July 24

This year we’ll be using the digital platform Beanstack so you can register for summer reading & keep track of your reading progress online. For each reading record you complete, you’ll be entered into a weekly prize drawing. Each reading record gives you an additional entry into the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer. Go to https://goshenpl.beanstack.com/ to sign up & get started! Open to grades 6-12.
