The theme for the 2021 Adult Winter Reading Challenge is FUN & GAMES, or, “Just Roll with It!” We hope to keep you entertained this winter with great books, programs, games, and prizes!

Register today on our website to participate online through Beanstack, which allows you to track your reading, complete challenge activities, and enter raffle drawings, all in one place.

Earn a raffle ticket for each activity you complete. Raffle prizes include $25 gift cards to Applebee’s, Best Buy, HomeGoods/Marshall’s, and Ulta Beauty. Complete 20 of the 24 activities to earn your completion badge and be automatically entered into the grand prize drawing for a fun & games prize basket.

If you prefer our traditional printed reading challenge game card, copies are available in the library or at the drive-thru window during library hours. Please note you can participate either online or on paper, not both.

The Winter Reading Challenge is open to adults 18+ who live in Albany or Rensselaer Counties. While most of the challenge activities can be done without a library card, some do require one.
