Winter is ending and it’s time to get out and enjoy spring while listening to a great book. This is Roaming Readers by Elkhart Public Library and the Elkhart County Parks.

Beginning April 1, a new monthly reading challenge starts. Instead of being for children, like our signature Summer Reading Challenge, this one is just for the grown-ups. Win prizes for listening to books in April and May.

Get outside and read!

All your listening can be tracked on our Beanstack app, available for free in your device’s app store. With Beanstack, you’ll earn prize entries for the number of minutes you listen and each activity you complete.

EPL is partnering with Elkhart County Parks for Roaming Readers. Badges are earned for each different county park you walk in while listening to a book.

Participants can listen to any audiobook they please.

And I can win prizes for this?

This year you could win a $100 gift card to Shoe Carnival to pick out new walking shoes or an Elkhart County Parks prize pack.

Prizes will be drawn at the end of the contest, which ends May 31.

Sign up on the Beanstack app and get your walking shoes ready and earbuds charged for Roaming Readers!
