Want to help out your community this New Year? Sunday, January 1 is the first day of #WinterRead2023 – READ TO FEED HARRISON COUNTY! The challenge is open to all ages, January 1 – 31. The goal is to read 9500 books as a community. If the goal is reached, Harrison County Community Services will receive 100 cases of chicken from Tyson, $1,000 from Duke Energy, $200 from REMC, and a $75 gift from Walmart. Canned food will be collected at all branches.
During the Winter Reading Challenge, everything counts! Books, eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines can be used from any source, library or personal. Try out HCPL’s new app to access eResources and more. Track your reading with Beanstack to earn emoji-themed badges and explore fun activities. You are challenged to read at least 10 books in the month of January to unlock the badges.
If you have participated in a reading challenge with us before, you already have a Beanstack account. The library will assist you if you have any difficulties logging on. If you do not want a Beanstack account, the library will be happy to log your reading for you. Just stop in at any library branch to pick up a Winter Read bookmark. HELP READ TO FEED HARRISON COUNTY!
