During winter you’ve got to get warmed up and what better way than drinking some Backroads Coffee and reading! The Reading Challenge – Winter Bingo sponsored by Backroads Coffee runs from January 1 – March 1, 2024 for Ages 0 – 100+. Keep track of your reading time and participate in two activities to earn badges (digital high-fives) in Beanstack. Explore your library and all the fun reading has to offer—all while earning badges on a virtual bingo card! Just for signing up for the challenge receive a fun sticker. Collect badges for logging your reading, completing activities, submitting book reviews, and earning bingo. Bingo reading challenges are completed when a reader earns all the badges in a row, column, or diagonal and unlocks the bingo badge. When you do that, you will receive a coupon good for one regular coffee or hot chocolate from Backroads Coffee. You can also earn a full card badge that’s awarded when you earn all the badges on the card. When you earn the full card badge, your name will be entered for a chance to win a $25 gift card from Backroads Coffee. A paper version is available at the library. Sign up for the challenge on Beanstack.
