Adult Programs

From January 1st to March 31st, the Vandergrift Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Simon & Schuster. Books Like Us is a celebration of diversity, harnessing the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book. This Winter, participating communities are invited to explore these books, from authors spanning an array of diverse backgrounds. 

We challenge our patrons to complete activities and read  [10 books] during the the winter months and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site.

Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of books. Top-performing libraries and schools will earn rewards from Simon & Schuster, including book collections and virtual author visits.

All patrons who complete the entire challenge will be entered into a raffle to win a Barnes & Noble Gift Card. Once you complete the challenge, there is nothing else to do on your end. Winner of the raffle will be contacted April 1, 2021. Happy reading!

*All Ages
*Challenge runs 1/1/21-3/31/21.
*Raffle drawing is April 1st. (Eligibility: Readers who complete the entire challenge are the only ones entered into the raffle.)
