Read and Bead

This year, start with a simple chain and earn beads by reading and by filling in weekly bingo boards! You will create a necklace that shows just how much you have accomplished this summer. Sign up in the library starting June 18th.

How to Earn Beads:
- Read 20 Minutes = Solid Bead
- Read 1 hour = Star Bead
- Read 2 hours = Letter Bead
- Bingo! (row, column, or diagonal) = Animal Bead AND a Pass to Fun!

Each week we will pass out different boards, but you can turn them in any time during the summer. You can only win one pass per board, though you can win multiple beads. Learn more about our amazing partners in the Passes to Fun tab.

All who participate are invited to attend our end of summer party on August 17th where we will celebrate your reading achievements!
