We now have on-line reading challenges available to all ages through our new “Beanstack” platform!

It’s like a “Fitbit” for your reading habits!

  • Try specific reading challenges;
  • Log your book titles or reading minutes;
  • Review favorite books and share them with others; 
  • Earn virtual “badges” for reaching reading milestones.


Our current programs include:

  • 1000 Books Before Kindergarten (for babies, toddlers, and pre-school);
  • Maine Student Book Award Challenge (for grades 4-8 and interested teens and adults);
  • The North Start YA Award Challenge (for grades 7-12 and interested adults);
