Summer Reading Challenge

Grow Your Story this summer at the Alhambra Library! Read 100 minutes every week and visit the Library every week between June 3rd and July 14th to complete the 2024 Summer Reading Challenge.


The completion prize will be yours if you complete all six weeks of reading. Get started by registering in the Beanstack Tracker app or online at the Alhambra Library Beanstack page.


REMEMBER: Read 100 minutes weekly and visit the Library to pick up your prize each week before the deadline for that week's prize, as previous prizes will not be available retroactively. ‘Bay-leaf’ in yourself, keep calm, and ‘carrot’ on!
