Winter Reading Challenge

Fill your mug on snowy nights this January and February, and jump into a good book – introducing Elkhart Public Library’s Winter Reading Challenge.

Unlike our signature summer program for kids, this one is for the grown ups. And because everybody likes a reward now and then, we have prizes.

All you have to do is read!

All your Winter Reading can be recorded in our Beanstack app, available for free in your device’s app store. You can keep track of your progress and complete some special fun activities on the way.

Not sure what to read or want something new? Check out our MatchBook service! (And pick it up at curbside!)

Earn badges and tickets for each book you read Jan. 10 through Feb. 25. With the tickets, you can enter our prize drawings.

Wait, did you say prizes?


How about a $100 gas card, presented by Five Diamonds Heating and Air?

We also are offering a library ghost hunt for two with Hart City Paranormal. You can go on a shopping spree with gift certificates from Hopman Jewelers or Stephenson’s of Elkhart.

And one more! How about a hang out with Zach and Brittney and the B100 Morning Crew? You’ll get a studio tour, breakfast, some swag and more.

So sign up now on Beanstack and get ready for the EPL Winter Reading Challenge!
