Join Williamson County Library’s Golden Ticket Winter Reading Challenge

Reading challenges with optional activities for three age groups.

Residents of all ages are invited to participate in Williamson County Public Library System’s second annual Winter Reading Challenge, which started on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021, and is ending on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.

There are reading challenges with optional activities for three age groups:

  • children ages birth-seventh grade
  • teens in seventh to twelfth grade
  • adults eighteen years of age and older.

These free Winter Reading Challenges ask each registered participant to read for 10 hours for a free book. In addition, they give everyone the option of participating in extra fun activities to earn small prizes. The WCPLS Winter Reading Challenge is available by registering today with Beanstack or by logging into your existing Beanstack account. Join the age appropriate winter reading challenge or visit your home library branch to register and pick up a paper reading log to participate. 

The Beanstack mobile tracker app is available from the App Store, I-Tunes, and Google Play. Registration runs from Dec.1 2021-February 2, 2022. Learn more about all the winter reading challenges available to different age levels on the WCPLS website.

Children and teens who earn a prize can visit their local branch to check in and pick it up. Prizes must be picked up in person at your home library branch. The deadline for picking up all prizes is February 19. Adults can pick up their prizes at the end of Winter Reading from February 2 – February 19.
