Fill your mug on snowy nights upcoming and jump into a good book. Elkhart Public Library’s Winter Reading Challenge is back.

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.

The Winter Reading Challenge begins Nov. 21 and runs through March 20.

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. If your child already has a Beanstack account, you’ll need to create a separate one just for yourself. You’ll see your progress and use the app to submit your book reviews and get entered to win.

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

Earn badges and extra entries by completing challenges, such as reading a recommended book. Any book review submitted is an entry for a prize.

Wait, did you say prizes?


We’re giving away prizes monthly this year, plus grand prizes at the end.

Monthly prizes are a YETI tumbler, a popcorn machine, a weighted blanket, a tea sampler set, and a wireless phone charger and sanitizer.

Grand prizes are Apple Airpods Pro, a De’Longhi Espresso Machine and a Wellfield Botanic Gardens family membership.

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