The Cedar Rapids Public Library invites everyone to warm up with a good book this January as part of the 2021 Winter Reading Challenge. From January 1st to January 31st, the Cedar Rapids Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, “Book Like Us,” sponsored by Simon and Schuster (S&S).
We challenge patrons to read at least 300 minutes during the month of January and keep track of your reading on our Beanstack site at CRLibrary.beanstack.org or call us at 319.261.READ and staff will assist you. If you participated in past reading programs, use your current login information to sign up for the Winter Reading Challenge.
Read as much as you can during the month of January and log your minutes on the website. Earn badges throughout the month, and complete the program by logging 300 minutes read.
There are no limits to the kinds of books you can read to participate in the Winter Reading Challenge. Physical books of all types, eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, and graphic novels, count toward your reading minutes. Reading together as a family also counts, so consider reading aloud together.
Share your journey with us on social media. Tag us @CRPublicLibrary and use the hashtag #WinterRead2021 and #BooksLikeUs.
