Program Description

From January 1st to January 31st, St. Joseph Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Books Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster (S&S). We challenge our patrons of all ages to read at least 1 book during the month to help us meet our community goal of 500 books read in January.  All you have to do is keep track of your reading on our Beanstack site at Join us and the thousands of other libraries and schools across the nation to read a target number of books.

Each reader will be eligible for a goodie from the library available for pick up in February.  You’ll also be eligible to win a prize from Simon and Schuster.  Prizes 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.  When we meet our community goal, we’ll also “Pie a Librarian” live on the library’s social media channels!  If we double our goal (read 1000 books), we'll pie Mayor Bill McMurray!  Watch for progress updates every Monday on Facebook!  Happy reading, St. Joseph!
