Winter Reading Challenge

Winter Reading Challenge For all Ages

January 1 - February 28, 2021

#WinterRead2021: Books Like Us

From January 1st to February 28th, Belleville Public Library will participate in Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Simon & Schuster. Books Like Us is a celebration of diversity, harnessing the transformative power of seeing oneself reflected in a book. This Winter, participating communities are invited to explore these books, from authors spanning an array of diverse backgrounds. 

We challenge our patrons to  set your own personal reading goal during the months of January and February and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at or go to for help. 

Thousands of libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read toward their goals this winter. Top-performing libraries and schools will earn rewards from Simon & Schuster, including book collections and virtual author visits. Happy reading, Belleville Public Library!
