Winterfest Reading Challenge




El Paso Public Libraries are hosting a reading challenge this Winterfest. It’s fun, easy to join and easy to complete the challenge. Simply visit and register online between now and December 29th. Then read just 5 books or more to complete the program. Through the Beanstack app, readers are able to keep track of their reading and are able to post reviews of their favorite books as well as keep up with what their peers are reading. Everyone who registers will receive one new free book while supplies last.

Winterfest Reading Club is just one way to keep kids engaged in learning during the holiday break. Studies show that children who remain active in reading during times when school is not in session do better in school and in life.
