Summer Reading 2020


Summer Reading 2020 Banner

This is a great summer to stay home, read, and turn your reading hours into dollars for our new library! If you’ve been to the library, you know we need a new building. If we can read 10,000 hours in June and July, $10,000 will be donated to the Building Fund!

Time is ticking, sign up today! 

You can sign up and participate online on Beanstack. Click below or search for the Beanstack heart in Google Play or the App Store. It’s free!

For teens, including those just a few months shy of age 13 who are going to be 7th graders in the fall, all we will say is beware of banana skins.

What’s the 10,000-Hour Challenge?

If the readers of Berryville can log 10,000 hours of reading this summer, the family of Judy G. Western will honor her love of books and community by matching each hour read with $1 and donate $10,000 to the Berryville Library Building Fund! All reading completed in June and July counts.  All types of reading count, including reading to others or listening to audiobooks. Last summer over 400 people in Berryville logged 6,800 reading hours.  The challenge is on to reach 10,000 this summer. WE NEED YOU TO READ!
