Get ready to level up your reading this winter, Bismarck! We challenge you to participate in one of our Winter Reading Challenges, January 20 through March 15. Get registered, track your reading, and complete the challenges using our new online reading challenge platform called Beanstack. You can access Beanstack and our reading challenges online or via any mobile device using the Beanstack app.
Bismarck and Burleigh County patrons of all ages are welcome to participate in one of our three challenges:
Kids’ Winter Reading Challenge
Kids through grade 5 are challenged to read at least 600 minutes, write a review of a book, and complete an activity.
