Summer Reading Challenge


June 1 - July 31

Read anything you want, any way you want, and log how many minutes you spend reading. Join and log your progress on Beanstack, or download and print a reading log and send it to us when you’ve finished!

  • For kids, 6th grade and younger, read a total of 600 minutes, with checkpoint badges earned every 200 minutes.
  • Teens and adults, read a total of 12 hours, with checkpoint badges earned every 4 hours.

Each Friday during the challenge we will be raffling off gift cards to local businesses. Everyone who has logged even 1 minute is eligible to win!

The challenge will end with a grand prize raffle. Earn a raffle entry for every checkpoint you reach, and for completing the challenge by July 31!

Community Challenge

We would like to show off our awesome community! In honor of the 125th anniversary of Grayslake, all your minutes read will count towards a community reading goal. If the community can reach 125,000 minutes total read--1000 minutes for every year Grayslake has been a village--we will have a special prize drawing! More details to come.
